Institutional Culture & Organizational Barriers

Institutional culture can play a significant role in all aspects of work performance including the promotion of ethical actions and the potential for unethical behavior. Responsible and ethical research can be bolstered by organizational cultures that prioritize and support such behavior. On the other hand, in organizations where responsible research is seen as a compliance box to check or undue pressure is placed on securing funding and publishing papers, unethical behavior may be more likely to arise. Sufficient attention and focus should be placed on conducting research with integrity so that it is integrated into organizational operations.
