Conférence 2 - Jean-Dominique Polack

Un aperçu de la conférence

Based on Corvol's report of June 2016, but also on other sources, the presentation shows how research integrity is treated worldwide and how its scope gradually reduced over years to only consider Fabrication, Falsification, and Plagiarism (FFP). However, Questionable Research Practices (QRP) are the major challenge for ensuring trust in scientists and scientific results. Beyond assessing the extension of misconducts, that remain marginally punished, Doctoral Schools must therefore focus on education and information of both doctoral candidates and supervisors, following the example of the Ethic Committee of CNRS and the American Office of Research Integrity.
