Briefing Series: new paper published on Research Integrity

Briefing Series: new paper published on Research Integrity

The second paper in our Briefing Series, ‘Research integrity: how can we support and protect early-career researchers in cases of alleged scientific misconduct?’ is available now

This briefing paper summarises key themes and ideas discussed at our ‘Research Integrity: supporting early-career researchers in cases of alleged scientific misconduct’ webinar, held on 22nd March 2021.

At the webinar, our panel of experts explored what happens when an early-career researcher observes a more senior colleague apparently engaging in possible malpractice and what processes are in place to address potential problems and protect those involved. The backdrop to the discussion was a paper by four of the panellists, outlining one possible mechanism for investigating reported cases of possible misconduct.

This event was a partnership between the Academia Europaea Cardiff Knowledge Hub, the Young Academy of Europe (YAE), SAPEA and the European Group on Ethics (EGE).
