The goal of science is knowledge. The goal of research is to draw inferences about a study sample and ultimately about the real world. The challenge is to minimize error. Adherence to scientific principles and accepted scientific practices minimizes error and facilitates accurate inferences. Research integrity and the responsible conduct of research is critical to the research process, maintaining trust in science, and preventing harm to those that research is meant to benefit. The responsible conduct of research in Audiology is reviewed here from the perspectives of an established researcher and a student investigator (i.e., doctoral candidate). The discussion begins with an illustrative vignette to spark contemplation and discussion of the topic. Ethical principles, regulations, and guidelines that promote research integrity are considered and additional materials for further study are provided.
