Description

Tragic research mistakes and how to avoid them

There are many potential pitfalls for researchers, especially when you are starting out in your career. Knowing the rules is one thing, working out how to navigate your way in practice can be difficult.

Researchers are often confronted with complex ethical situations. Should I put that person as an author on that paper when they didn't do much work? How do I take notes so that I don't plagiarise by mistake? Is it true that you can't graduate unless you have copyright permissions for all your images? Can you use Dropbox to store research data? How much can a copy editor on your thesis actually do? What can you do if you see someone being bullied or sexually harassed in your office?

Come and find out the answers to these and many other dilemmas in our short workshop. We show you how smart researchers operate ethically when confronted with the complex social situations that exist in university environments. We show you how to solve problems while avoiding damaging key relationships and how to put in place systems that will help you sleep at night.

This workshop is part of the Science, Health and Medicine Career Development Framework program and can be counted as a valid activity

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • know some of the common research integrity problems faced by research students
  • have a better understanding of why some of these problems occur
  • have an understanding of what steps I can take to reduce the risk of these problems affecting my research
  • be aware of my responsibilities for reporting problems (and some of the common barriers to reporting)

This workshop will be presented by Dr Cally Guerin, a Learning Advisor in Research Skills and Training at The Australian National University. She has worked in researcher education since 2008. Her research interests include research writing, academic identities, the academic workforce, and doctoral education. She is a founding co-editor of the DoctoralWriting blog. Cally is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (now known as Advance HE). You can read more about her research on ORCiD and here, and follow her on twitter @CallyGuerin.
