Background information

This symposium marks the end of the National Survey on Research Integrity. The project, funded by ZonMw’s Fostering Responsible Research Practices Programme, was designed as a tool to estimate the prevalence of research misbehaviours, research misconduct and responsible research practices, as well as potential explanatory factors and their associations with these behaviours across disciplines and academic ranks. The NSRI is one of the world’s largest research integrity studies and, in helping to uncover the underlying associative factors behind different research behaviours, is one of the most comprehensive surveys to date. The project aims to better inform research performing organizations and other stakeholders within the research system, such as research funding organizations, of research integrity topics that require particular attention, facilitating evidence-based change in research integrity initiatives and policies.

Jeron van ridder.jpg

Dr. Jeroen de Ridder: Moderator 

 

Jeroen de Ridder is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Professor of Philosophy (by special appointment) at the University of Groningen. Until recently, he was president of The Young Academy of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. His research focuses on knowledge and democracy and the responsibilities of universities.

Prof. Dr. Dorothy Bishop: Keynote: The importance of Research Integrity in a changing scientific world

 

Dorothy Bishop recently retired as Professor of Developmental Neuropsychology at the University of Oxford, where she headed an ERC-funded programme of research into brain lateralisation. She is an honorary fellow of St John’s College Oxford. Her main research interests are in the nature and causes of developmental language impairments, with a particular focus on psycholinguistics, neurobiology and genetics. Beyond psychology, she is active in the field of open science and research reproducibility, and in 2015 she chaired a symposium by the Academy of Medical Sciences on 'Reproducibility and Reliability of Biomedical Research'.  She was inaugural chair of the Advisory Board of the UK Reproducibility Network and a founder member of Reproducible Research Oxford, UKRN's local hub. She remains active on social media, with a popular blog, Bishopblog, and she tweets as @deevybee.

Gowri Gopalakrishna.jpg

Dr. Gowri Gopalakrishna: Key findings of the National Survey on Research Integrity project

Gowri Gopalakrishna is an epidemiologist and mixed methods methodologist with many years of public and private public health experience. Some of her more notable contributions include her role in the control and containment of the SARS outbreak in Singapore in 2003. In her current role she is lead investigator of the Dutch National Survey on Research Integrity, which is one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive studies on research integrity. She was featured in the Dutch media on her SARS experience and later on the impact of speed science, open science and research integrity during the covid-19 pandemic. She is currently also Chair of the Equity Coordinating Committee of the International Federation of Biosafety Associations and Editorial Board member of BMC Medical Research Methodology. She was also part of an independent group of experts reviewing the Dutch National Covid Response in the covid-19 pandemic.

Tamarinde Haven.jpg

Dr. Tamarinde Haven: Good supervision and mentoring: a key part of responsible research cultures

Tamarinde Haven studied psychology, philosophy and epidemiology and now works as a postdoctoral researcher at the BIH QUEST Center for Responsible Research, Charité, Berlin. In her PhD, she focused on the role of the research climate in fostering or undermining research integrity. As part of her PhD project, she co-developed a training for PhD supervisors entitled “Superb Supervision” that has now been offered at the Amsterdam University Medical Centers as well as the University of Amsterdam. She also worked on preregistration for qualitative research, where she developed a preregistration template for qualitative research through a Delphi study. In Berlin, Tamarinde works on topics related to responsible supervision, responsible assessment, and Open Science.

Brian Nosek.jpg

Prof. Dr. Brian Nosek: Safeguarding Research Integrity in the Open Science era

 

Brian Nosek is co-Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Open Science (COS) which operates the Open Science Framework. COS is enabling open and reproducible research practices worldwide. Brian is also a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 2002. He co-founded Project Implicit, a multi-university collaboration for research and education investigating implicit cognition – thoughts and feelings that occur outside of awareness or control. Brian investigates the gap between values and practices, such as when behavior is influenced by factors other than one's intentions and goals. Research applications of this interest include implicit bias, decision-making, attitudes, ideology, morality, innovation, and barriers to change. Brian applies this interest to improve the alignment between personal and organizational values and practices. In 2015, he was named one of Nature's 10 and mentioned on the Chronicle for Higher Education Influence list.

Vincent Lariviere.jpg

Prof. Dr. Vincent Larivière: Why diversity is important for Research Integrity

Vincent Larivière holds the Canada Research Chair on the Transformations of Scholarly Communication at the Université de Montréal, where he is professor of information science and associate vice-president (planning and communications). He is also scientific director of the Érudit journal platform, associate scientific director of the Observatoire des Sciences et des Technologies (OST) and regular member of the Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche sur la Science et la Technologie (CIRST). His research focuses on science policy, scholarly publishing, and diversity and equity in science.

Noemie Aubert Bonn.png

Dr. Noémie Aubert Bonn: Changing researcher assessment: international developments

Noémie Aubert Bonn is a post-doctoral researcher currently doing research on research at Hasselt University (Belgium) and Amsterdam University Medical Center (Netherlands). She is originally from Québec (Canada) where she studied cognitive neurosciences and psychiatry, but she quickly became uneasy with academia's pressure to publish and hyper-competitive environments so she decided to change field to address these issues. Noémie recently completed her PhD at Hasselt University, during which she explored different stakeholder’s perspectives of the impact that current research assessments and definitions of success in science have on research practices and research integrity. Noémie’s post-doctoral research continues in this direction: being at the same time involved in the SOPs4RI project – a European Commission project that aims to create a toolbox to help research institutions and research funders foster better research integrity – and participating in research projects that look at different aspects of research environments, research assessments, research practices, and researchers’ wellbeing.
