Research Integrity and Ethics Training and Resources
Training available at DMU
The RBI run a full training session on research integrity which has work on case studies, and UKRIO run sessions at DMU annually. If you wish to become more involved in research integrity please speak to the RBI about attending external conferences and workshops.
In order to help everyone raise their awareness of these issues, the following free resources are available:
Academy of Management The Ethics of Research and Publishing Video Series
A high quality video series provided by The Academy of Management on a range of research ethics and integrity issues. The Authorship video is particularly useful. (Note: the videos contain American academic terms e.g. faculty member rather than supervisor, but are still highly appicable to all research).
In "The Lab: Avoiding Research Misconduct," you become the lead characters in an interactive movie and make decisions about integrity in research that can have long-term consequences. The simulation addresses Responsible Conduct of Research topics such as avoiding research misconduct, mentorship responsibilities, handling of data, responsible authorship, and questionable research practices. Please be aware of cultural differences between the UK and the US, particularly in regard to the way in which research imisconduct is investigated, when undertaking this training.
There are also aa range of other resources from the US Office of Research Integrity.
"TRREE is a free and open access online training program on research ethics and regulation. TRREE's learning material is currently available in English, French, German, Polish and Portuguese. It also provides access to the national regulation in the participating countries. The training is modular. It includes an introduction to research ethics (module 1), a module on the role and responsibilities of Research Ethics Committees (module 2.1), several modules on the national regulation in given countries from the North and the South (module 3) and a detailed module on informed consent (module 4)."
The Dilemma Game
The EUR has developed a game which helps staff and students discuss dilemmas and stimulates them to find solutions. This game contains many common integrity issues. It also offers participants the opportunity to formulate dilemmas from their own practice. In a lighthearted fashion, they can discuss how their own department applies the values from the Integrity code and clarify their responsibilities
This site offers an Ethics Toolkit which "include tools to help avoid misconduct and background materials about research and publication ethics".
