The government must give more details about how its proposed policy on academic misconduct will be implemented, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has said.
In a consultation response on 1 September, the academy said the government’s proposal was “incomplete on several points”. The implementation of the proposal must be clarified to ensure equal treatment across the country, it said.
Earlier this year, the government proposed setting up a Research Misconduct Board to investigate all cases of alleged misconduct at public institutions. This is because the existing system for investigating research misconduct lacks uniformity at a national level, the government said.
