UKRIO welcomes the publication of ‘Interventions to prevent misconduct and promote integrity in research and publication.’ Authored by Ana Marusic, Elizabeth Wager, Ana Utrobicic, Dario Sambunjak, Melissa Anderson and Hannah Rothstein, the protocol assesses educational and policy interventions.
The interventions considered focus on promoting research integrity. The protocol measures research behaviour through professional standards and how to prevent unacceptable or fraudulent research and publication procedures. The publication acknowledges the difficulty of measuring the long- term effects of interventions and suggests adopting alternative endpoints, for example changes in researcher’s attitudes.
