The 5th World Conference on Research Integrity was organized around the interlinked themes of transparency and accountability, building on the premise that the honesty and reliability of research are best served by openly sharing all aspects of research and by taking personal responsibility for it. The conference program explored the challenges of promoting transparency and accountability and the consequences of the failure to do so, with the overall goal of developing an evidence-based agenda for addressing the various lapses of integrity that seem to have become an endemic problem in research today. Researchers, institutional leaders, research administrators, funders and publishers gathered in Amsterdam in May 2017 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the World Conferences on Research Integrity.
HEIRRI was present at this Conference by the hand of Ana Marusik, Professor at the University of Split, member of the HEIRRI consortium. HEIRRI participated at the Responsible Conduct of Research approaches 02 session, together with other projects and initiatives focused on research integrity, such as ‘How to use fiction movies in education on responsible conduct of research‘, ‘Reviewing the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Literature from a Scientific Virtue Perspective‘, ‘A virtue-based responsible conduct of research (rcr) curriculum: pilot test results‘ and Exploring the fun in science: a prerequisite for succesful RCR-courses.
