Research Integrity Code

VU International News and Reviews No. 121 October 08 2018

October 2018

The Dutch national associations of Higher Education and Research institutions have joined forces to publish (in Dutch but also English) a “Code of Conduct for Research Integrity”.

Like elsewhere, also the Netherlands research community has had its incidents with shady or downright faulty research integrity and the ever-increasing pressure to ‘publish-or-perish’ is also felt here.
The Code articulates Principles, Standards for good research practice, Institutions’ duty of care, as well as measures and sanctions in cases of non-compliance. The Code is binding by virtue of self-regulation and has been adopted by all the platform organisations of institutions for higher education and research – and these institutions themselves. Private organisations involved in research are invited to join.
