Herr to Offer Free Webinar on Research Misconduct
The campus community is invited to join Melody Herr, head of the Office of Scholarly Communications, for the webinar Research Misconduct: Definitions, Causes, and Responses from 10-11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11. The webinar is offered at no cost to attendees.
Research misconduct, according to the National Academies, costs the nation several hundred million dollars every year — yet the most significant cost is the loss of trust in researchers and their work. Both within the research community and across society, broken trust threatens the advancement of science. This webinar provides an overview of research misconduct — its definition, causes, and consequences — and empowers you to respond effectively if you suspect, detect or face pressure to commit misconduct.
Everyone who supports or participates in research shares responsibility for promoting integrity and addressing misconduct. This webinar targets library and information science professionals and research administrators, but anyone involved in research is welcome to attend. You do not need any prior knowledge or experience.
"We don't need a SWAT team of research police," Melody says. "Instead, we need agents of integrity — informed, concerned individuals who speak up for the values that we all share. The University of Arkansas can become a leader in trustworthy research."
This webinar is based on Herr's recent article in Science &Technology Libraries.
