6th World Conference on Research Integrity
The 6th World Conference on Research Integrity (WCRI) in Hong Kong, which is co-organized by Melbourne, will explore the application of these new research findings to develop new and better solutions to address New Challenges for Research Integrity.
This will include discussion on:
- Open data, methods, access and other moves towards transparency in research;
- Replication, reproducibility and research waste and the levers that can be used to encourage further and deeper consideration by researchers;
- Better ways of managing research misconduct, including its operationalization in norms and standard operating procedures, and updates on better ways of trying to address it;
- The importance of embedding education on responsible conduct of research into institutions and evidence on how this can be delivered in the most effective way;
- Exploring how cultural differences might impact the conduct of research and need to be taken into account while fostering research integrity, like for instance ensuring proper credit and ownership in cultures which different views on authorship;
- Ways we should conduct research so that the end-users of our research – governments, industry and the public – can trust and use the findings; that is how we ensure integrity in innovation and impact; and
- Institutional assessment of researchers.
Interactive workshops, including the Doctoral Forum, are featured on the day before the conference. The main program will consist of thematic plenary sessions and symposia, oral sessions, moderated poster pitches, and focus tracks. There will be plenty opportunities for interaction and discussion.
