On October 13, Elisabeth Bik will give a lecture in Amsterdam, explaining her work as an 'image forensics detective' searching and reporting biomedical articles that contain errors or data of concern. During the last years Elisabeth has done a systematic scan of 20,000 papers in 40 journals and found that about 4% of these contained inappropriately duplicated images. In her talk she will present her work and show several types of inappropriately duplicated images and other examples of research misconduct. In addition, she will show how to report scientific papers of concern, and how journals and institutions handle such allegations.
On December the 3rd NRIN organizes its annual symposium. This year we created a program where research on research is presented from different angles and multiple disciplines, with the purpose to broaden the perspective on research integrity.
Held both in Amsterdam and online by livestream, this symposium explores the concept of research integrity and why the NSRI initiative is the beginning of a journey towards better research practice for all. The symposium serves as a kick-off for the NSRI launch and all are welcome. This meeting is open to all disciplines of researchers interested in research integrity and relevant stakeholders who contribute to the scientific system. The meeting will be announced online and through the social media channels of collaborating endorsers of the NSRI when relevant. The event will be held in English so as to enable researchers of all backgrounds to join. The set-up is aimed at stimulating a lively, interactive exchange and dialogue among speakers and attendees. Participants can join onsite or online depending on Covid-19 circumstance.
