Symposium on Breaches of scientific integrity: cases and procedures

The symposium will deal with dilemmas and procedural aspects of investigations into breaches of scientific integrity. A survey held among Committees on Scientific Integrity across Europe will be presented, which shows a wide variety in procedures, e.g., whether or not anonymous complaints are considered, what the remit of the committee is, and whether or not the final report is made public, anonymized or not. More philosophical questions that will be discussed are whether scientific integrity is itself a norm, and how far it extends: does it concern the integrity of science, or of the scientist? The afternoon will kick off with a play on integrity dilemmas, followed by two short presentations, after which three procedural items will be discussed.
