Guidelines for research institutions on research integrity education of bachelor, master and PhD students
This document provides guidance to research institutions on what to include in their research integrity education strategy for bachelor, master and PhD students.
Education and training are needed to raise awareness about research integrity and provide researchers with the needed tools to promote responsible research practices. Research integrity education offered to bachelor, master and PhD students ensures that students learn about responsible research practices at the start of their research trajectory. This document provides guidance to research institutions on what to include in their research integrity education strategy for bachelor, master and PhD students. The guideline provides information relevant for research officers, trainers, managers, and coordinators, as well as deans, rectors and other institutional leaders. Given the broad diversity that exists among research institutions, it is possible that some recommendations are not applicable in all research settings. For this reason, the guideline should not be seen as a ‘one-size-fits-all’, but rather as a tool that can be used flexibly and adapted to meet institutions’ specific needs.
