Integrity is being honest and upholding moral principles.  I believe that everyone struggles with this at some point in their life. We must try to overcome obstacles and avoid temptation in order to do the best to uphold our beliefs throughout our daily lives.  It is our responsibility, as Christians, to conduct research with integrity and in an ethical manner.  To display integrity one must be gracious, respectful, honest, trustworthy, and patient.  In Proverbs 12:22, the Bible states that, “The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.”  The Lord believes that if you do what is right, you will be accepted by God, even more than any sacrifice.  Also, in Proverbs 10:9, the Bible states that “Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.”  God sees every action we display, the good and the bad.  At the end of the day, we must work hard to walk in faith and have a good conscience.

A current news story that speaks to academic research misconduct is from the New York Times from March of 2019.  A Duke University researcher fabricated data to gain grant money.  Duke University will now have to pay $112.5 million to the federal government to settle allegations that researchers submitted applications and reports containing falsified data in order to win more than two dozen grants from the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency.  Research analyst, Joseph Thomas, who worked in Duke’s pulmonary division, said that another researcher, Erin Potts-Kant, had made up data connected to as much as $200 million in federal research grants (Kaplan, 2019).

This displays research fraud and a lack of research integrity and Christian ethics.  Directly speaking, from Proverbs 12:22, the Bible tells us that God doesn’t condone people that lie, and He rewards people that tell the truth and that are trustworthy.  In this situation, the people involved did not speak the truth or promote good ethics in research.  As a result, the university now requires research integrity training for all faculty at Duke University.

To conclude, I believe that we, as educators and researchers, should follow the words from Ephesians 6:6.  “Not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.”  If our Godly actions come from the heart, nobody can stand against us. We must remember this as we continue our research in every area of the dissertation process.
