Academic Integrity

When discussing academic integrity in broad lines researchers tend to have very similar ideas as to what academic integrity is and how to avoid it from being compromised. But when discussing concrete cases, things may not be as clear as they seem. In this course you will receive information about academic integrity and its different contexts. Discussion will raise awareness of possible pitfalls.

Course description

Like in any profession, scientists are frequently faced with dilemmas: Can I exclude particular observations from my research? Can I use exactly the same data set for multiple papers? Should I agree on a colleague being a co-author on a paper to which she has not made a significant contribution? The Dilemma Game confronts researchers with difficult dilemmas in the context of a critical dialogue, supporting them in further developing their own 'moral compass'.

The Dilemma Game has been developed by Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) to stimulate awareness of, and an open and critical discussion about, integrity and professionalism in research. The game lets participants consider, choose and defend (and possibly reconsider) alternative courses of action regarding a realistic dilemma related to professionalism and integrity in research. Discussing research integrity is vital as it contributes to an open, safe, and inclusive research culture in which good research practices are deeply embedded.
