Dear ,

Just before the summer break begins, we would like to inform you about different things we’ve been working on during the last, quite unusual months. Like everyone else, we had to cancel some events and managed to host others digitally. Although we’re still in the middle of uncertain times, we prefer to look forward!


New beginnings.. 

As some of you might recognize, we used the first weeks of working from home to catch up on our to-do list. At the top of that list was our plan to redesign the NRIN website, with the main purpose of making it more user-friendly: easier to navigate, search and find all the content we’ve been collecting over the years. It’s going to look great! Thus far, this not-so-little project went according to plan, and of course you will receive a notification when we go live (which should be sometime this summer).


NSRI -official launch 

Besides promoting research integrity by making online information easily accessible, we have been preparing the launch of the National Survey on Research Integrity, on the 15th of October this fall. To recap: the main goal of this survey is to learn more about particular characteristics associated with responsible and irresponsible research practices.  It is widely recognized that the pressures and dilemmas faced by researchers in the current system of science and research climate do not adequately facilitate responsible research practices.  Nevertheless, there is still little ‘know how’ about which strategies should be employed to decrease the occurrence of questionably research practices. If you are curious about the  survey or the program, we highly recommend you to watch this short, clarifying animation clip. Or visit

Registration details will follow on from mid Aug 2020.


Erasmus University launches the Dilemma Game app

Researchers are regularly confronted with moral dilemmas. Discussing these with colleagues, team members or supervisors can be difficult, yet it is important to do so in order to further develop your inner compass, learn from other researchers and experience support. The Dilemma Game app makes discussing dilemmas easier and more fun. The app was developed by Erasmus University Rotterdam because it considers it important for researchers to be able to discuss dilemmas in a safe environment. You can play it in different ways and submit your own dilemmas. Free to download from the App Store and Google Play Store.

COVID-19 and academic integrity

Against the backdrop of governments trying to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, our colleague colleague Gowri Gopalakrishna has been giving a number of interviews for national television, newspapers and panels. Both as an experienced epidemiologist in Singapore during the SARS-epidemic in 2003, but also as an advocate of research integrity and open research during the current Corona-crisis. In these interviews Gowri emphasized the importance of transparency and open science around Covid-19 related research and policies. Most recently, Gowri and others wrote a blog for BMJ Opinion, addressing the urgent need to safeguard research integrity during the COVID-19 pandemic, which you can read here.


Abstract submission WCRI2021

Despite the hard to predict near-future, we would like to point out the opening of the abstract submissions for the 7th WCRI, and the preliminary conference programme on July the 15th. It goes without saying that the 7th WCRI organization monitors the Covid‐19 developments closely and will follow all recommendations of WHO and the South African health authorities. Moreover, the organisation’s twitter-account seriously up to date: follow them and you’ll be sure not miss anything.
