Among the challenges facing academic psychiatry in Asia, and in low and middle income countries, is training future psychiatrist-investigators in the responsible conduct of research. We describe efforts to achieve a global consensus on the elements of research integrity training, the 2010 Singapore Statement, as well as best practices we have identified in developing research ethics education networks in Latin America. The Singapore Statement is a first pass at consensus guidelines; some local articulation may be possible, even desirable. Research integrity must be part of the research training for all future investigators. Building research capacity includes research integrity capacity. Moreover, as research is collaborative, research integrity cannot be idiosyncratic.
