EASE/UKRIO panel discussion

How can peer review support research integrity?

Wednesday, 21 September 2022 2pm-3.30pm (UK time)

EASE and UKRIO joined forces to host a panel discussion for Peer Review Week 2022.

Over the last few years there has been increasing attention on research integrity, and on the need to develop best practices and incentive structures that encourage and support integrity in research. Through its important role to evaluate and vet research works prior to their publication, peer review is one of the steps that can support awareness of research best practices and compliance with integrity requirements.

Peer review plays an important role in researcher education, for example by fostering use and compliance with reporting guidelines. Peer review can also identify ethical concerns about the design, completion or communication of research. But can we expect peer review to detect all possible deviations from rigorous research practices? Where does peer review fit within broader steps by different stakeholders to drive integrity in research?

In this session, speakers brought the perspective of journals, researchers and institutions and shared their experience handling integrity cases and discussed the role of peer review in driving integrity and trust in research.

Matt Hodgkinson, Research Integrity Manager at UKRIO and EASE Council, chaired the panel with contributions from:

Gowri Gopalakrishna, Amsterdam University Medical Center
John Carlisle, ‘Data Detective’ Anaesthetist NHS Hospital, Torquay, UK
Magdalena Morawska, Research Policy and Governance Officer, UCL
Caroline Porter, SAGE Publishing

This event was free and open to all.
