Rewarding true inquiry and diligence in research Vol 385 May 30, 2015
On May 31, about 600 delegates from over 50 countries and all continents will gather in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for the 4th World Conference on Research Integrity. The inaugural 1st World Conference was held in Lisbon, Portugal, 8 years ago.
