Call for Papers

Abstract Guidelines

1. Part of the programme is reserved for research-oriented presentations. We invite abstracts that focus especially on the following topics:

  • European data protection laws, research and research integrity practices
  • Open science and research integrity
  • Types of plagiarism and effective preventive measures
  • Research integrity in interdisciplinary projects
  • Intersections between research ethics and research integrity
  • Conflicts of interest in research
  • Authorship issues in scientific publishing

We are particularly interested in problem-solving presentations that propose practical solutions to clear challenges. PhD students and early-career researchers are especially welcome to submit abstracts of their work. Despite the European perspective of this congress, the call for papers is not restricted to researchers working in Europe.



2. The call for papers is also open for introductions of European RI research and development projects and their outcomes.

The projects can be in their initial stages, in progress or already completed.

The abstracts for project presentations should include

  • a description of the project
  • relevance to research integrity practice
  • the expected or achieved outcomes of the project.

The research and project proposals can be either talks or posters. Please indicate which form of presentation you would like to propose.

3. We welcome workshop proposals pertaining to the theme of research integrity practice. The workshop topics may draw from the general themes of the congress (see Programme), but we are happy to consider all proposals that relate to research integrity practice.

The workshops should engage the participants in a genuinely interactive way and increase the participants’ knowledge and understanding of the topic at hand.

The abstracts for workshop proposals should include

  • the motivation behind the workshop
  • its relevance to research integrity practice
  • intended learning objectives
  • a brief description of proposed interactivity
  • the organiser of the workshop and their background (professional/academic affiliation).

Workshop length is 90 minutes (unless otherwise agreed). The arrangements of the approved workshops will be discussed with the workshop conveners.
