Integrity is an essential aspect of research and publication. It ensures that information is conveyed truthfully and that the accuracy of the scientific record is maintained. Misconduct has many adverse consequences on human health, institutions and colleagues; and also wastes funders’ money. Research papers may be retracted and researchers themselves dismissed from institutions, sanctioned by regulatory bodies, or even imprisoned. Major misconduct issues include data fabrication and falsification, plagiarism, undertaking studies in humans without ethical approval and so on. The workshop will provide a case-based approach on the types of misconduct, the consequences, and how editors and publishers maintain the integrity of the scientific record.
