Date & Time:
Monday, 15 June 2015 - 10:00am
University of Glasgow
Commitment 3 of the ‘Concordat to Support Research Integrity’ creates an expectation that institutions will “nurture a culture of integrity”. Encouraging a culture of integrity in research should be the cornerstone in any ethical organisation. But what does it mean and how can it be promoted? This is a workshop for anyone involved with the ethics of research who wants to explore ways to tackle these challenging questions. The focus will be on two main aspects: the link between publication and research ethics; and the development and support for institutions, researchers and students alike, to enable “a culture of integrity”.
