NATIONAL SURVEY ON RESEARCH INTEGRITY
WHAT IS NSRI?
The National Survey on Research Integrity (NSRI) is a unique endeavor to acquire the necessary solid empirical basis for building strategies to reduce Detrimental Research Practices (DRPs) and thereby foster Responsible Research Practices (RRPs) in the Netherlands.
The NSRI acknowledges both the need to take an efficient science-overarching perspective and the differences between scientific disciplines. It also acknowledges the complexity of the science system by addressing the roles of all its major stakeholders (such as researchers, institutions funders, and journals).
All scientific enterprises have the responsibility to ensure that the science it produces is trustworthy, to merit society’s trust and investment in science.
Although the importance of preventing DRPs is widely recognized, the scope of engagement in DRPs is currently unknown. It is also unclear which strategies should be employed to decrease the occurrence of DRPs.
Many initiatives aimed at promoting research integrity exist, but there is not enough strong empirical evidence on how to actually reduce researchers’ engagement in DRPs.
We aim to raise awareness not only within The Netherlands on the prevalence of DRPs across the different science domains but also to shed light on specific determinants of these misbehaviors.
By doing so we hope to be able to influence the creation of a more transparent and rigorous approach in the conduct of science as a whole.
We believe our study findings are relevant for scientists, research institutions, funders, and publishers of scientific research.
