Interview on Research Integrity Concordat

Dr Sorcha Uí Chonnachtaigh, PEAK, School of Law, was recently interviewed for Sunday Sequence (BBC Radio NI) about the recent launch of the UK Concordat for Research Integrity.

The Concordat follows the recent imprisonment of a researcher, Steven Eaton, for faking data on anti-cancer drugs and the announcement that retractions in scientific journals are likely to exceed 500 for 2013.

The Concordat, supported by the top HE research funding bodies, focuses on embedding and supporting a culture of research integrity, monitoring mechanisms, and transparent and robust processes for dealing with allegations of misconduct.
