The 5th World Conference on Research Integrity Accountability in Research: Policies and Quality Assurance

The 5th World Conference on Research Integrity will be organized around the interlinked themes of transparency and accountability, building on the premise that the honesty and reliability of research are best served by openly sharing all aspects of research and by taking personal responsibility for it. The conference program will explore the challenges of promoting transparency and accountability and the consequences of the failure to do so, with the overall goal of developing an evidence-based agenda for addressing the various lapses of integrity that seem to have become an endemic problem in research today.

We are looking forward to welcoming researchers, institutional leaders, research administrators, funders, publishers and others to Amsterdam in May 2017 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the World Conferences on Research Integrity.
Accountability in Research will publish a thematic special issue on Research Integrity from articles of the conference.
