White House OSTP blog on scientific integrity

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) launched its own blog last week. Among the first posts are a series of 6 principles of scientific integrity for which OSTP is seeking recommendations from the public to craft a plan for the President.

On Monday, President Obama spoke to the National Academy of Sciences, saying, "As part of this effort, we’ve already launched a website that allows individuals to not only make recommendations to achieve this goal, but to collaborate on those recommendations; it is a small step, but one that is creating a more transparent, participatory and democratic government."
