Registration is closing today for UKRIO’s workshop ‘Authorship: Promoting good practice and resolving disputes’, taking place 1 April 2014 in central London.
Facilitating good practice in authorship is often challenging. Different disciplines have different norms, while the requirements of academic journals can vary a great deal. Career pressures can encourage researchers to cut corners and disputes over authorship can be difficult to resolve. This workshop will focus on the discussion of good practice in authorship and how to promote high standards within institutions.
By the end of the workshop, participants will:
• Understand the conventions for authorship and the complex issues which can arise
• Have explored practical measures to help researchers in their institutions understand standards for authorship, including the role of institutional authorship policies
• Have a better understanding of how to investigate and resolve problems/ concerns with authorship in their own institutions.
To inform discussions, delegates are asked to send anonymised authorship ‘cases’, problems, issues that concern them or which they have had to confront to UKRIO . All submissions will be dealt with under the Chatham House Rule.
This event is the first in a series of UKRIO workshops on specific aspects of research integrity. The workshops will have a practical focus and cover promoting good practice within an organisation as well as responding to problems and concerns. The workshops will be held primarily for those research organisations which have chosen to subscribe to UKRIO but we may schedule additional events for non-subscribers if there is sufficient demand.
Further information, including how to book, can be accessed here.
Please note that this event is for members of UKRIO subscriber institutions only. If your institution would like to learn more about the benefits of supporting UKRIO, please contact us.
