Check your email: The National Survey on Research Integrity (NSRI) has launched!

You are eligible to join if you are a researcher spending at least 8 hours per week on research tasks in a Dutch University or University Medical Center in the Netherlands or in affiliation to one.

 Please check your email for an invite from Lex Bouter our lead PI at (, and join the survey*. It takes approximately 20 minutes. Every voice counts!

Let’s shape the future of research in the Netherlands: together.

As researchers across all disciplines, we understand how much the world relies on the results of our work. That's why it's important we have a say in the way our research is conducted.


"We want researchers to be able to work in an open environment in which they feel responsible and accountable. Science and scholarship can only develop further if people can share concerns about dilemmas and discuss errors made," says Prof. Lex Bouter.

Every voice matters:

If you are a researcher in the Netherlands, please check your email starting October 15th, 2020 and join the survey.

See why some of your peers consider the NSRI important:


Joining the NSRI is one of the best ways for you to contribute to the quality of research in the Netherlands. The NSRI is a survey created by the research community, for the benefit of the research community, to gather information on a broad number of issues such as research norms and behaviors, open science practices, competitiveness and work pressure. Your contribution to this survey will help us make recommendations about the way we conduct research and ways to improve this.


The journey towards greater research integrity can easily be misunderstood as an effort to point fingers at poor research practices of the past. To the contrary, as researchers and academics ourselves, we deeply understand the nuances and issues that are associated with this topic. Rather than study the problems, we seek to create positive and lasting change for the benefit of science, researchers themselves, and the greater public.

*The NSRI is completely anonymous. Kantar Public (TNS NIPO) is reaching out to you by email so that we never receive any survey responses directly. To learn more on how we protect your privacy, read our FAQ.
