What does open access have to do with research integrity? Join the TDL Research Integrity Working Group for a conversation with Heather Coates, Digital Scholarship & Data Management Librarian at the IUPUI University, on 27 October 2022 at 2 PM Central. There is no charge to attend – and you don’t even have to register.
Open Access Is Necessary But Not Sufficient To Ensure Research Integrity
This interactive session will explore the central role of open access to publications, data, instruments, protocols, code and/or scripts in fostering a culture of research integrity and public trust in research. Through discussion of contemporary investigations into misconduct, we will consider the interconnectedness of good data practices and open access with principles of research integrity. In particular, we will discuss concrete practices related to project management, data management, and training that enable validation, foster a culture of research integrity, and support greater openness in the conduct of research and dissemination of research outputs.
