The first public Path2Integrity survey is up and running
Path2Integrity has just launched the project's first public survey on the Perception of Research Integrity.
In a society marked by rapid technological change, for example with regard to big data and artificial intelligence, research and innovation are crucial. You might have heard of the term "knowledge society" in that regard. However, although it is widely recognised that research is very important, public confidence in science has been seriously undermined in recent years. One reason for this loss of confidence are numerous breaches of research integrity. You might have heard of some of these, asking yourself how they could go unnoticed for quite some time. We assume that at least part of the reason is that the research integrity culture in Europe is not as well-developed as it ideally should be. Thus, our study seeks to improve the research integrity culture in Europe by developing innovative learning materials that are based on role plays and role models. Furthermore, we are waging a campaign on research integrity in educational organisations.
With the goal to obtain information from different groups of interest concerning Research Integrity, this survey addresses a broad range of people, starting from researchers over to secondary school teachers, public administrations, companies and the general public.
The data collected from this questionnaire will be used in preparing the project's campaign on Research Integrity. It will especially help Path2Integrity develop a range of materials and channels of dissemination in order to increase the awareness of research models among academics, secondary school teachers, young researchers, and students.
More information about this and further surveys can be found in Path2Integrity's Science Hub.
