Would you like to contribute to a study about research integrity?

Vitae is inviting researchers at all career stages (from PhD candidate upwards) to participate in a workshop looking at research integrity and researcher behaviour. The workshop takes place on Friday 9 August (pm) at the University of Manchester.

This workshop forms part of a study commissioned by Research England, on behalf of UKRI, led by Vitae in partnership with UKRIO.

Background

Research integrity means doing research in a way that ensures it is trustworthy and ethical. The 2012 Concordat to Support Research Integrity defines core elements of research integrity as:

  • Honesty
  • Rigour
  • Transparency and open communication
  • Care and respect for all participants in and subjects of research.

This study will consider

  • the effects of incentives in the research system on researcher behaviour in the context of research integrity,
  •  how these incentives are perceived by different stakeholders, and
  • the impact of these incentives on researcher behaviour and organisational practices more broadly.

As part of the project’s first stage, workshop outputs will help inform the design of future components of the study.

Outline workshop agenda, 9 August

  1. Welcome and introductions (15 min)
  2. Part 1. Discussion questions and brainstorming in small groups (1 hour)
  3. Refreshment break
