ABSTRACT

This study aims at establishing an effective research integrity governance in South Korea by redefining roles and responsibilities of government ministries, national boards and committees, and funding agencies. For the purpose, it examines relevant laws and regulations to identify the major actors that constitute a research integrity governance and the relationships among them. It proposes three alternative models: (1) to strengthen the linkages among extant national boards and committees related to research integrity without any legal reforms, (2) to expand the functions of funding or professional agencies, benchmarking the U.S. system, and (3) to establish a new national body, the National Research Integrity Committee, under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education to administrate research ethics issues across various academic disciplines comprehensively.
