ONLINE & PARTICIPATIVE: Research Misconduct and Questionable Research Practices

 

About this workshop

This workshop will give you a brief overview of different types of research misconduct (RM) and questionable research practices (QRPs). It will also empower you with tools for identifying and avoiding QRPs and approaches to take when confronting RM.

By participating in this workshop you will empower yourself with both knowledge and tools that you can utilise to strengthen your own research and to develop and deliver responsible research projects.

This is the second in a 3-part workshop series which we encourage you to take as a complete set.
