Data integrity has become an industry buzzword, but do people really understand what it means? A recent survey we conducted with Chemistry & Engineering News (CE&N) showed that scientists think about data integrity differently. Read on to learn more about our survey and the results we found.

Analytical data plays a critical role in R&D by supporting critical decision-making on a daily basis. Whether a synthetic chemist is looking to see if their reaction yielded the product they expected, a group of scientists in development are building an impurity control strategy, or experts in manufacturing are collecting data for regulatory submissions, applications of analytical data are ubiquitous. At a time when the volume of insight-rich data one can gather is extraordinary, chemists working in academic research, industry, and non-profit organizations alike face regular challenges in managing and sharing their data.
