Foreign Influence on Research Integrity

As noted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Advisory Committee to the Director (1), the research enterprise is subject to risks regarding peer review integrity and intellectual property protection. Although foreign nationals overwhelmingly contribute to enhancing the University of Kansas (and national) research community, some foreign governments have taken advantage of our highly productive and interactive research community by mounting systematic programs to unduly influence and capitalize on research activities. 

The University of Kansas is committed to fostering dynamic research collaborations while also promoting full transparency surrounding all interactions with external sponsors, industry and foreign entities. In support of this vibrant research environment, we expect every member of the research community to comply with all university and sponsor policies. The resources below are designed to aid in this compliance:
