Study aims to drive up research integrity

Work by Vitae will look at what motivates researchers’ approach to ethical work

Higher education careers organisation Vitae is to study what motivates researchers to strive for research integrity, as part of a growing push to drive up standards.

The study “aims to understand the pressures, incentives, disciplinary norms, and personal motivations” that influence how research is carried out. Vitae said on 24 October that it hopes the work—conducted in partnership with the UK Research Integrity Office and commissioned by Research England—will inform future policy decisions to improve levels of research integrity.
