Guidelines for research institutions on the research integrity education of post-doctorate and senior researchers
This document provides guidance to research institutions on what to include in their research integrity education strategy for post-doctorate and senior researchers.
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 post-doctorate and senior researchers ensures awareness about research integrity among researchers across seniority levels, and helps researchers to stay up to date with the latest developments regarding research integrity. This document provides guidance to research institutions on what to include in their research integrity education strategy for post-doctorate and senior researchers. 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.
