Research Integrity Blended Course

Each scientist deals with dilemmas in the field of research integrity. About the extremes of the spectrum is little discussion. It is clear for everyone that falsifying and fabricating data, and also committing plagiarism, are very serious errors. This is scientific misconduct. However, it is less clear for a wide range of questionable research practices. These often involve violations of the methodological basic principles.

All scientists will recognize the pressure to publish and to gain grants. The temptation might come along to cut a few corners, or worse. Resisting that temptation is not always easy. There are also many dilemmas for which the answer is not easy to give and can raise doubts about how to behave in specific situations.

We will discuss these issues in our blended course.  

The course is mandatory for all PhD students of the VU University Medical center.

1. The Epigeum online course about Research Integrity.
