These sessions will provide a general introduction to issues of good practice in research, considering the decisions to be made in its planning, conduct, and publication.

Course Details

These face to face sessions complement the University's online Research Integrity courses.  Through lecture, discussion, and case studies we will aim to develop an understanding of research integrity issues – both in principle and in practice in participants’ research contexts.

The order of the sessions follows the trajectory of research, focussing in turn on design, conduct, and reporting.

The aim of the sessions is to encourage participants to articulate and reflect on the key responsibilities they have as researchers, identify challenges to meeting these responsibilities and to consider strategies for dealing with pressures and difficult situations.
