jst/CHORUS FORUM: research integrity at JOSS 2022

8 June, 2022 – Free online meeting
10:00 – 11:30 AM Japan time





Integrity is fundamental to advancing trusted research. Research must be conducted in such a way that allows researchers to have confidence and trust in the methods and findings on which others can build their research, and so that research results can be translated for societal benefit and advancement. Whilst there are many positive components of research integrity, there are three fundamental ways in which the research record can be undermined:

  1. Research fraud through fabrication, falsification, and plagiarism.
  2. Lack of reproducibility due to improper recording and/or reporting of research procedures.
  3. Insufficient vigour or robustness in editorial and peer-review processes.

At this joint JOSS 2022 Forum Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and CHORUS bring together a panel of speakers to present their views on research integrity and to discuss how to manage and address these problems from their different perspective.

We thank the JOSS 2022 organizers for including this FORUM in their virtual meeting.
