Publication and communication

RPOs must specify their expectations about procedures related to the publication and communication of research results. Specific policies and procedures to be included in the RIPP should address the use of preregistration, preprints, and online repositories, guidelines for the attribution of authorship, procedures for handling authorship disputes, the organisational approach to open access, FAIR data curation, expectations aboutthe use of reporting guidelines, procedures for avoiding predatory journals, strategies for responsible peer review practices, and mechanisms to support and acknowledge public communication of research findings.
