Research Integrity Workshops

Everyone who participates in research shares responsibility for ensuring integrity throughout the research cycle. This two-part workshop series is designed for library and information science professionals who conduct research themselves, assist researchers in any discipline, or provide instruction in any aspect of research.

During the first workshop, the instructors present the concept of research integrity and demonstrate its practical applications through engaging case studies focusing on research data. During the second workshop, attendees learn how to build a modular instructional program for students and faculty at their own institutions.
