Invitation to Research Integrity and Publishing Ethics Workshop in AS, April 28
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We are pleased to announce that the “Research Integrity and Publishing Ethics Workshop” will be held at the International Conference Hall, 3F of the Humanity and Social Science Building, Academia Sinica at 13:30-17:00, Friday, April 28, 2017. This is a Workshop co-organized by ELSEVIER and Academia Sinica, to which you are cordially invited to attend. For further information and online registration, please visit the official website at http://taiwan.elsevier.com/htmlmailings/Event/research_integrity/ and register.
Research misconduct, an increasingly visible problem within the academic communities, has recently made headlines in Taiwan’s news media. Despite that ethical practices are intrinsically assumed with academic institutions, multiple factors such as peer pressure, promotion and tenure, ego, and monetary reward may drive a given individual into research misconduct. To manage this increasingly important issue, academic institutions around the world have begun to set up Research Integrity Office (ORI) to establish ethical guidelines, handle and investigate allegations of research misconduct, and provide educational training to the stakeholders. For example, both the Ministry of Science and Technology and Academia Sinica have just recently set up comparable apparatus in this regard. This Workshop seeks to explore this ongoing trend by inviting four speakers to share their perspective experiences on the following topics:
Scientific Misconduct: Stories and Lessons Learned;
Elsevier’s position on publishing ethics & learning from the Stapel case;
Detection methods for wrongly manipulated images;
Appropriate management of research misconduct and COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics).
We look forward to seeing you at the event.
With best regards,
Department of International Affairs,
