How a publisher's research integrity group works

12:30 PM - 12:55 PM

Who’s responsible for ensuring that research is conducted and reported ethically? Is the incidence of misconduct on the rise? What about honest mistakes? Which problems occur most frequently? How are those problems detected, and what mechanisms are there for fixing them? Suzanne Farley (Research Integrity Director at Springer Nature) will address these questions, focusing on the role of publishers. Some publishers, including Springer Nature, have a specialist team dedicated to investigating and resolving research integrity and publication ethics problems. Suzanne will outline her team’s working principles, tools used to detect and prevent problems, and blockers to progress.
