Research Integrity Symposium: Integrity in the scientific literature: restrictions, papermills and honesty in peer review
(10am – 12pm, via Zoom, in-person attendance at Room G03, 1 Wally’s Walk)

Transparency and honesty in scientific publication is crucial for maintaining trust in research. Researchers need to be able to trust that what they read is genuine, accurate, and has been peer-reviewed in a fair and equitable way. The public needs to be able to trust that research being published is reliable and robust. Retractions for misconduct are becoming more common and have thrown shade on the desirable process of retraction of papers due to honest mistakes or irreproducible data. New threats to integrity like paper-mills are emerging whilst peer review systems have been facing increasing criticism. In this symposium, hosted by Professor Mark Connor, Faculty of Medicine, Health and Human Sciences, hear about the experiences and insights of researchers in navigating these complexities.
