We are proud to have finalized the International Research Integrity Survey (IRIS), where 73,757 researchers from 34 countries responded, making it by far the largest survey on Research Integrity! The main objective of which was to examine the perceived need for organizational research integrity policies and procedures among researchers. IRIS provides an overview of researchers’ reported engagement in research practices that may be considered questionable or detrimental to the quality of research across countries and research areas, in order to establish a sense of the scope of the problem. It also aimed at establishing the need for organisational efforts to actively mitigate. Results show non-trivial levels of self-reported participation in questionable research practices with some variation across countries and research areas.
