COPE partner with UKRI on fact-finding workshop
COPE and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) are co-hosting a fact-finding workshop on sharing information between journals (publishers), research organisations and funders, where that information is about allegations or cases of intentional research misconduct.
UKRI, the major public research funder in the UK, has convened three fact-finding workshops to identify current practice, and perceived challenges and risks in information sharing. One workshop will be with publishers (co-hosted by COPE), another has taken place with UK research organisations, and a third workshop with UK research funders.
These workshops are a fact-finding exercises, to understand existing practice, trends and challenges. UKRI will draft a synthesis report of all three workshops. The output will provide evidence on which stakeholders may plan next steps. COPE will also take this opportunity to review the support we provide our members.
