About Research Integrity for Experienced Researchers
Research Integrity for Experienced Researchers addresses key issues and challenges faced by senior and established researchers, principal investigators, and those with leadership and management responsibilities. The course addresses topics including authorship disputes, data management and reproducibility, and managing collaborations and conflict. It showcases practical strategies that reflect researchers’ experiences at this level and encourages the application of key learning outcomes into individual research contexts.
As part of Epigeum’s Research Integrity portfolio, the programme allows institutions greater flexibility in delivering their training, or implementing refresher training, for more senior researchers. It aims to support institutions in facilitating responsible research conduct and best practice at all levels and throughout the course of a research career.
- Short course format with approximately 1.5 hours of core content.
- Tailored to experienced researchers enabling them to assess complex professional responsibilities within the research environment.
- Addresses current research integrity issues, challenges, and key emerging topic areas.
- Enables researchers to reflect and apply key take-aways to their individual contexts and subject disciplines.
- Supports next steps or further learning by providing easy access and signposting to additional guidance.
- Scenario based learning: learners will engage with authentic real-world scenarios, where they can identify potentially problematic behaviour or potential risks to research integrity, reflect on the course of action and implement an appropriate management strategy. Feedback will be provided as the scenario develops.
- Case Studies: practical strategies will be incorporated within the programme to illustrate best practice and further connect the content to real-life researcher experiences.
