Carrot or stick? How might funders and publishers respond to new challenges for research integrity?
What can RFOs and journals do to foster research integrity?
The principles of research integrity remain, but the environment in which research is funded, performed, communicated and evaluated is constantly changing and evolving, creating many important questions.
For example, how is the technological revolution changing research integrity?
What happens when policy lags behind practice, between nations, regions, and globally?
What do new fields of research, like AI, mean for research integrity?
How do old incentives create new challenges for funders and for publishers?
Are there unintended consequences from new ways of assessing researchers and evaluating research?
These kinds of questions are important for funders and journal publishers to ask, and to begin to answer and answering questions like these successfully almost always means collaboration.
Speakers in each session, representing funders and representing publishers and journals, will – in turn – discuss emerging and new challenges. The session chair will then guide discussions about each, to identify shared concerns and potential actionable solutions, to deliver meaningful insights to a global audience.
