At Radboudumc we regard research integrity as crucial for high-quality research and education. It is important to gain and exchange insights that can help foster responsible research.

 

Please pay attention to two upcoming national initiatives on research integrity:

1. Share your views on research integrity in the national survey

Radboudumc is participating in the National Survey on Research Integrity (NSRI) which will be launched in October. The NSRI is funded by ZonMw and will be conducted by a research group at Amsterdam University Medical Center. It calls on all academic researchers of the participating Dutch universities and university medical centers, to share their experiences with and views on research integrity.

2. Discuss responsible research practices with your peers and supervisors at the national symposium

A national symposium on research integrity will be held on 15 October 2020. It is meant for all researchers across every discipline, and aims to open up the discussion on responsible research practices in an interactive way. The symposium will be available via live-stream. You can register here.

Why should you consider participating?
The findings of the NSRI will give information about what researchers in the Netherlands believe is going well, what can be improved, and potential ways to realize desired changes. A high response is important for understanding the issues that need attention in order to foster a strong research community. Your voice counts.

How is data collected?
The NSRI researchers will receive your answers without any individual link to you. To ensure this, the NSRI is conducted by a trusted third party, Kantar Netherlands B.V. Radboudumc will provide Kantar with the email addresses of its researchers, for the sole purpose of this survey. Kantar will send an email with the survey link to all researchers starting 15 October 2020. You can at this point decide to join or decline participation. See the NSRI privacy statement for more information.

You are encouraged to participate in the NSRI and, should time allow, to attend the symposium.
