Briefing paper: RI: what it means, why it is important and how we might protect it

Last modified: May 25, 2017

In this briefing paper Dr Maura Hiney, Chair of the Science Europe Working Group on Research Integrity, gives a clear and well structured overview of the evidence and developments in the field of research integrity and research misconduct. It captures and analyses all the relevant stakeholders and actors, and Hiney raises interesting questions about individual and collective responsibility.

Relevant for all who wants to learn more about the history of research integrity –for example on the role of the mass-media in putting the topic high on the public agenda- and where we are at now. Food for thought and easy to read!
