Background information

Research institutions have the responsibility to ensure that the research it produces is trustworthy, to merit society’s trust and investment in scientific and scholarly research. Particularly when this is funded publicly. Although this is widely recognized, the pressures and dilemmas faced by researchers in the current system of science and research climate do not adequately facilitate responsible research practices. It is also unclear which strategies should be employed to decrease the occurrence of questionably research practices across different domains of research.

 

Understanding, as best we can, how researchers foster research integrity and where they face difficulty in doing so is critical to appreciate the differences between responsible research practices and questionable research practices. So, let’s discuss openly the triggers for cutting corners or engaging in research misbehavior and about how researchers are navigating the system of science while striving to improve the quality, relevance and credibility of their work;  about what researchers, and research institutions can do to help foster research integrity in The Netherlands and beyond.
