Times Higher Education reports that the new research integrity concordat may become mandatory


Times Higher Education reports that HEFCE may introduce compliance with the forthcoming Concordat to Support Research Integrity as part of its financial memorandum with universities.

Times Higher Education: Hefce’s purse strings may be tied to concordat

UKRIO sees the Concordat as a useful contribution to sustaining research integrity in the UK. The key issues are to make sure that it is appropriate and useful, without imposing additional burdens, and that organisations are given in-depth on its implementation. While we are not a member of the stakeholder group which is developing the Concordat, UKRIO has been invited to advise on these issues. Our detailed response to the draft Concordat can be found here.

THE also covers an interesting research misconduct case in Germany:
