CSU to host national research integrity conference

Keeping the pool clean flyer

Research inherently builds on the work of others and requires a clean “pool” of knowledge. Learn best practices of building a solid research foundation at Keeping the Pool Clean: Prevention and Management of Misconduct-Related Retractions, July 20-22 at the Hilton Fort Collins.

The national conference will cover how to handle fraudulent submissions, whistleblowing, retraction notices, ethics, roles and responsibilities, and institutional incentives that cloud the research waters.

Presentations will comprise 16 international speakers including researchers, journal editors, universities, research integrity officers, and those from the ORI, NSF, Science, and Retraction Watch.
