As the national network on research integrity in The Netherlands, NRIN organizes mutiple symposiums and a diversity of open meetings. Here you can find a collection of these video recordings, accecible for everyone interested.
Monthly recurring meetings on recently started RI related projects, research idea's or proposals. The purpose of these meetings is twofold: to strengthen the presented research, by learning from each others suggestions, perspectives and feedback, and to help building an engaged RI-research community.
On our calender you can find upcoming presentations with a short summary on the presentation's topic. Below you can find clips of past lunchmeetings.
Investigating the occurrence of reporting bias and publication bias in registered reports with the use of p-curves
Publication bias and reporting bias are major problems in academic research. Registered reports aim to prevent both these biases. In the proposed study, we aim to check how successful they are in doing so. We want to do this by comparing p-curves of registered reports with those of traditional publications.The p-curve is formed from the distribution of statistically significant p-values. The skewness of the p-curve (good materials at p-curve.com) is a measure of how much evidential value a set of studies contain, or, in other words, how likely it is to be biased.
Empowerment as core focal point in educational tools in RCR education
If we take empowerment as a core focal point in RCR education, what does this entail and how can you design and develop course materials that can stimulate empowerment? In this lunch lecture, I will present both the core idea of empowerment and show some examples how we try to operationalize this in practice and share some experiences we had in testing the tools.
On December 3rd NRIN organized its annual symposium, this year focussing on Research on Research Integriy. Below the clips of our plenary speakers, according to the symposium's program schedule.
As an historian, professor Herman Paul states that the development of 'virtues' as a characteristic aspect of science, cannot be missed: from ethics, political philosophy, educational theories and epistemology. However, according to Paul, there seems to be a lack of interdisciplinairity and discussion when focussing on virtues. What can, for example, research ethicists and historians learn from each other when focussing on these aspects of scientific practice?
For her recently published dissertation Towards a Responsible Research Climate. Findings from academic researchers in Amsterdam (available in our Library), Tamarinde Haven conducted an extensive study to analyse the research culture in Amsterdam. During the NRIN symposium in 2020 she briefly explains the design, methods, conclusions and recomendations based on this pioneering study.
Krishma Labib is a PhD in the SOPS4RI project, a multi partner project existing of an international team of researchers aiming to foster research integrity, by designing a toolbox that translates the aspirational values from codes of conduct in practices and policies. In this presentation Krishma Labib explains the design of the toolbox by focussing on the data she and her team collected based on their discussions with focus groups on education.
dr. Pieter Huistra shows that replication studies in the humanities are not problematic per se: replication of for example historical studies can be feasible and highly relevant. Nevertheless, there are important variations in regard to the conditions studies from different academic discplines should meet, and it is important to highlight these.
In this 'both controversial and true' presentation, dr. Rik Peels advocates why replication studies in the humanities are useful and desirable, and moreover could be seen as an important virtue in research. Specifically in relation to it's progress.
In this video Lex Bouter gives a presentation during the KAMG Conference in February 2021, explaining the importance of transparency when research is under pressure and interests are at stake. For example during the COVID-19 pandemic.
