Guidelines for research institutions on the research integrity education of support staff and research integrity personnel
This document provides guidance to research institutions on what to include in their research integrity education strategy for support staff and research integrity personnel.
Education and training are needed to raise awareness about research integrity and provide stakeholders with the needed tools to promote responsible research practices. Not only researchers, but also support staff and research integrity personnel can benefit from research integrity education. Research integrity education can equip support staff and research integrity personnel to adequately support researchers in engaging in responsible research practices. This document provides guidance to research institutions on what to include in their research integrity education strategy for support staff and research integrity personnel. 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.
