Researchers and research institutions have a variety of financial, personal, and political interests that sometimes conflict with their professional, ethical, or legal obligations. These situations can create conflicts of interest or the appearance of conflicts of interest. This chapter discusses how conflicts of interest affect research, how they are defined, and how they should be managed. It also describes how government agencies and research institutions have responded to conflicts of interest in research and describes some cases from science.

Keywords:   conflicts of interest, scientific objectivity, financial obligations, personal obligations, political obligations, ethical obligations, legal obligations, appearance of conflicts
