Vitae Research Integrity Workshop, 8 October 2019, Edinburgh.

Would you like to contribute to a research study of research integrity? The Concordat to Support Research Integrity (2012) defines research integrity as ‘maintaining the highest standards of rigour and integrity in all aspects of research’


  • Honesty in all aspects of research
  • Rigour in methods, interpretations and communication
  • Transparency and open communication
  • Care and respect for participants, subjects and the stewardship of research and scholarship

Vitae in partnership with UKRIO have been commissioned by Research England, on behalf of UKRI to undertake a research integrity landscape study. This project will consider the effects of incentives (drivers and motivators) in the research system on researcher behaviour in the context of research integrity, how these incentives are perceived by different stakeholders and the impact of these incentives on researcher behaviour and organisational practices more broadly. 

The study involves a number of research workshops between July and October and a large-scale researcher survey in the autumn.We are looking for researchers at all career stages (from PhD candidate upwards) and in all disciplines, who are based in the UK, to participate in one of the workshops. We are now seeking expressions of interest for autumn events. These will take place in several locations across the UK. The workshop is a half-day programme and participants are not asked to do any preparation or follow-up.

To register interest for the Edinburgh Workshop, held at the Scottish Funding Council, follow this link.

Please note that we will seek to balance attendance at the workshops taking into account discipline, career stage and institution. Workshop places are limited and we will confirm places by email and hold a waiting list.
