Summer Seminar on Research Integrity: progress reports and future directions.
From August 25-27, NRIN and the Abraham Kuyper Center (AKC) organize an interactive Summer Seminar on Research Integrity. Although the summer still seems far away, behind the scenes the organisation-committee is currently in full preparations for this three-day event, and we are happy to announce that the registration is open and the full program is online.
The aim of this seminar is to think together about the future directions of research integrity: what initiatives, policies and guidelines have been developed recently in order to strengthen the responsible conduct of research? What are the state-of-the-art suggestions to help researchers, institutions, funders and journals in their contribution and responsibility to foster responsible research practices?
The event offers a great variety of interactive lectures, with attention for learning about the relevance of different research integrity tools, alongside keynote speeches. We conclude each day by an interactive debate on what should be addressed next.
The program is divided into day-themes: the first day we will discuss tools that researchers could use themselves to foster integrity such as preprints, post-publication peer review, preregistrations and replication. We invite participants to try out these tools themselves and offer workshops on making a responsible publication plan. Day two focusses on policy-related initiatives and concentrates on how institutions could implement these initiatives themselves. On the third day, we will zoom in on publishers and discuss the epistemology of publishing as well as strategies for how publishers can deal with a changing publication system.
Check the full program below, and join this interactive Summer Seminar with experts from around the world, by registering here. All three days will be organized in an online-only format.
We are looking forward to see you this summer!
