Research Integrity

Dr Greg Moorlock, Kirstie Shearman, Professor Heather Draper and Dr Anne-Marie Slowther are hosting a series of lunchtime meetings intended to promote research integrity and encourage an environment of good research practice within the University. Meetings will be held once per term, with lunch provided for those who confirm their attendance in advance. The meetings have been funded by Research Active Staff Network Funding.

Next Meeting: We are currently in the process of applying for funding to run the network for another year.

Meetings will be run as informal discussions of short vignettes intended to capture unexpected challenges to best practice.

For example:

You are collecting data (audio recorded interview) in the home of a patient. The patient’s husband in retired and at home at the time. He asked if he can stay in the living room while you do this. It’s hard to say no given that it’s his home too and his wife immediately says yes anyway. After only a short time he starts to interject his own views and very quickly his wife starts to defer to him. What should you do?

Everyone from postgraduate researchers to senior PIs is welcome to attend. A diverse range of attendees with differing levels of experience has resulted in some lively discussions in the past, and hopefully people at all career stages can leave having learnt something new. The discussions will be written up positively as examples of good practice, and posted here as a helpful resource.
