Integrity Seminar

This workshop focuses on areas where doctoral students and young researchers are at risk. Many scholars think that avoiding research integrity problems is a matter of footnotes and references. That is only part of the story. There is a range of rules and practices that are often discipline-specific and sometimes time-bound. Advice from dissertation advisors may reflect the rules in place when they were doctoral students, and not the expectations of contemporary journals or colleagues.

 

Research integrity includes three aspects: plagiarism, image manipulation, and data falsification. In this workshop, we look at those aspects from doctoral students’ point of view. You will learn how complex they are, why it is challenging to detect misconduct, and what it means that research intergrity depends on discipline-specific practices.
