Protecting the Integrity of Academic Work in Corporate Collaborations

From: Academic Freedom in Conflict


I point out examples of the corporate undermining of scientific inquiry, review studies on the extent to which universities have compromised their academic integrity in corporate collaborations, and discuss recent initiatives that point the way to protecting academic integrity and academic freedom when universities enter into partnerships with corporate or special interest groups.
