Responsible conduct of research
EMBO is increasingly involved in work to understand the parameters of the responsible conduct of research and how best to provide this information to scientists. Our work focuses on the activities of scientists at the bench or computer, issues of research integrity in the writing and publication of research results, and the roles of scientists in society.
- On-line training course - The Science Policy Programme was involved in the development of an on-line training course on responsible conduct of research, which is available to EMBO Members, Fellows, and Young Investigators.
- San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment DORA – EMBO is one of the signatories of an international declaration calling on the world scientific community to eliminate the role of the journal impact factor (JIF) in evaluating research for funding, hiring, promotion, or institutional effectiveness.
