We are delighted to see that SOPs4RI Project guidelines are featured at the Horizon Europe Programme Guide!

Results from the International Research Integrity Survey (IRIS), conducted in the context of SOPs4RI, are presented at LSE’s blog post with the title “Who should take responsibility for integrity in research?“! Do not miss the insightful information provided by George Gaskell, Nick Allum, Miriam Bidoglia, and Abigail-Kate Reid.
A new article in Science Report.dk on how institutions – with and without research integrity policies – can use the SOPs4RI toolbox: https://sciencereport.dk/ny-viden/nyt-vaerktoej-styrker-integriteten-paa-din-forskningsinstitution/. Since it is in Danish, here are some main points below:
Institutions – research institutions as well as funders – with none or few RI policies in place can use our toolbox to develop a Research Integrity Promotion Plan. Guidelines for how to do this, which topics to focus on and templates can be found in www.sops4ri.eu/toolbox
Institutions that already have RI policies in place can use our toolbox to check if they have covered all relevant topics – and subtopics. Research institutions should cover nine main areas – and funders should cover six. They can also find inspiration in the 131 SOPs and guidelines in the toolbox for different RI areas (training, supervision, how to build a more positive research environment, etc.) to further develop their RI policies and plans.
The international survey made in the context of SOPs4RI identified key areas for organisations to strengthen research integrity. Go here: https://www.essex.ac.uk/news/2023/01/10/international-survey-on-research-integrity to read the news released from the University of Essex.
The ending of 2022 brought the conclusion of SOPs4RI. But, the farewell to this wonderful project comes together with a warm welcome of the complete Toolbox, with new tools and functionalities! Go here: https://sops4ri.eu/toolbox/ to have a view of the final version of the Toolbox.
After four years of intensive work SOPs4RI has released the final version of the Toolbox (https://sops4ri.eu/toolbox/)! Do not miss the opportunity to go through it, be inspired, and use it!
After a fruitful interaction in Vienna, representatives from Austrian Universities, pilot testers, Dorian Karatzas, and SOPs4RI consortium members have a well-deserved smile on their faces! To be continued . . .
We are so happy to host the representatives of the pilot institutions in Vienna. We are so grateful for their help in optimizing the Toolbox. Looking forward to seeing you!
We are excited to learn that the 8th World Conference on Research Integrity will be held in Athens, Greece from 2-5 June 2024.
