Research Integrity Workshop
For all University of Portsmouth Research and Academic Staff
Your confidence and potentially your research career can be ruined by allegations of misconduct and unethical practice. While the retraction of high profile publications makes headline news, cases of blatant misconduct by researchers remain rare. What is much more common are authorship disputes, accusations of plagiarism and poor practice surrounding data collection, manipulation and storage that spiral towards unethical practice and misconduct. In this workshop case studies will be used to illustrate how poor practice and lack of attention to key aspects of research governance can land researchers with awkward questions to answer. Practical approaches that researchers can use to help improve their research and protect their career prospects will be discussed.
This workshop will enable you to:
Understand research integrity issues that can arise during a project lifecycle
Understand how poor practice contributes to research errors and misunderstandings
