Monitoring Industry Ties

By Kaustuv Basu

Many academic and professional groups have guidelines to deal with financial conflicts of interest and to protect research integrity. But they don’t do enough, especially in the area of academic freedom, says a report being released today by the American Association of University Professors. The report recommends numerous guidelines to encourage more public reporting of professors’ industry ties and bans on certain kinds of relationships.

The report “AAUP Recommended Principles & Practices to Guide Academy-Industry Relationships,” lists 56 guiding principles related to academy-industry collaboration in the areas of academic freedom and governance, student education and training, management of intellectual property, management of financial conflicts of interest including clinical care and human subject research, and alliances with corporations.
