New report: Research Integrity in the Nordic countries

New report: Research Integrity in the Nordic countries

Last year NordForsk invited experts to a seminar on Research Integrity procedures and professional research ethics review processes in the Nordic countries. NordForsk latest report is based on the seminar and gives an overview of the situation in each of the five Nordic countries.

The Nordic countries share a set of values and notions of responsible conduct of research. However, national guidelines and procedures differ considerably. 

The aim of the seminar was firstly to obtain a comprehensive picture of the ethical procedures and practices, as well as of the legal frameworks. Secondly, the purpose was to use the input received as a first frame of reference for a NordForsk policy regarding ethical perspectives on research programmes supported by at least three Nordic countries.
