Let’s shape the future of research in the Netherlands: together.
As researchers across all disciplines, we all understand how much the world relies on the results of our work. That's why it's important that 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.

There are multiple ways to contribute to the quality of research in the Netherlands. The National Survey for Research Integrity (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. Opening on October 15th, 2020, 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.
Research Integrity matters to all of us.
