Incentives in the research system on research integrity


Complete the survey - closed 6 November 2019

Vitae in partnership with UKRIO have been commissioned by Research England, on behalf of UKRI to undertake a research integrity landscape study. This project will consider the effects of incentives (drivers and motivators) in the research system on researcher behaviour in the context of research integrity, how these incentives are perceived by different stakeholders and the impact of these incentives on researcher behaviour and organisational practices more broadly.

“Research integrity, broadly the conducting of research in a way that ensures that it is trustworthy, ethical and abides by professional standards, is vital to ensure the accuracy of the results and conclusions of research.” Quote by Steven Hill, Director of Research at Research England

Researcher experience many pressures, incentives, disciplinary norms, and personal motivations that may affect the way research is carried out. The study aims to understand these factors and how they may relate (positively or negatively) to research integrity. 

We are looking for researchers at all career stages (including PhD candidates) and in all disciplines, who are based in the UK, to participate in the survey.
