The OFIS, which assists and supports the scientific community in promoting best practices in research integrity, today announces the publication of the “Guide to Recording and Processing Reports relating to Research Integrity.”
Drawn up by the ‘Procedures’ working group of France’s national network of research integrity officers (RESINT), this guide has 2 main objectives:
- to help each research integrity officer to put in place a procedure for responding to reports of violations of research integrity within their institutions and organisations, in keeping with the best practices which apply in this field;
- to facilitate cooperation between research integrity officers. The guide thus includes a series of recommendations which comply with the main official sources, designed to help each institution or organisation develop procedures tailored to their requirements.
The guide will evolve and be adapted in response to the feedback submitted by RESINT members.
