This webinar will discuss issues of good practice from the perspective of academic publishers. What issues do editors, journals and publishers face in safeguarding good research practice? How can researchers and publishers best work together to ensure the integrity of the research record? What might best practice in disseminating research look like?
The focus of this webinar is consent. Informed consent is an essential element of research integrity and one of the founding principles of research ethics. It is a communication process between the researcher and the research participant. For a human participant to voluntarily enter research they must have the full information about what it means for them to take part. Only then can they give consent before they enter the research. The speakers will discuss best practice in obtaining consent in different research disciplines.
The focus of this webinar is research ethics. The speakers will discuss their experiences with current themes that are challenging for research ethic committees (RECs) as well as reflecting on the ethical review process to facilitate a culture of good research practice.
This is the third in the series of monthly webinars from the UK Research Integrity Office on research integrity and related issues. This webinar will bring together representatives from the sector to discuss a new report, Research Integrity: a landscape study, published by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
