The Interplay Between Open Scholarship and Research Integrity

The aims of open scholarship and research integrity are often aligned, as seen with the principles of transparency and collaboration contributing to increased reproducibility and trust. However, openness and integrity are not the same and sometimes these priorities may even collide.

Matt Hodgkinson, Research Integrity Manager at the UK Research Integrity Office (UKRIO), will explore how the various aspects of open scholarship, such as open access, data sharing, open code, open peer review, and open methods can help research integrity, where ethical principles such as protecting people and the environment may limit openness, and some of the perceived risks of open practices such as pre-printing and citizen science to the integrity of scholarship.

What you will need:

You will need to provide your own computer ideally with the Microsoft Teams desktop app installed, otherwise with a browser (must be Chrome or Edge). Guidance notes for using Teams will be emailed to you when you book. You will need a speaker and microphone for listening and speaking. You need to be online with a reliable internet connection.

Notice of recording:

Each live online training session will be recorded for accessibility and inclusivity reasons, and will be shared with all attendees after the session. It may also be put onto Canvas (Oxford University’s virtual learning environment) to enable other Oxford University members with SSO to view it.
