Wednesday 26 June 14:30 until 16:00
Bevendean House 302 on the Falmer campus of the University of Brighton
Speaker: Suzanne Farley, Research Integrity Director at Springer Nature
Part of the series: Brighton & Sussex Research Integrity Seminars

We are pleased to announce the first in a series of Brighton & Sussex Research Integrity Seminars being organised and hosted jointly by the University of Sussex and University of Brighton. The first event will take place at 2.30pm on Wednesday 26th June 2019 in Bevendean House 302 on the Falmer campus of the University of Brighton (please note that this venue has no lift access).

We are delighted that our speaker will be Suzanne Farley, Research Integrity Director at Springer Nature (brief details about Suzanne are included below). The seminar is entitled Research integrity: where do publishers fit in?

It will focus on issues such as: Who’s responsible for ensuring that research is conducted and reported ethically? Is the incidence of misconduct on the rise? What about honest mistakes? Which problems occur most frequently? What mechanisms are there for fixing problems when they are detected? Suzanne Farley will address these questions from a publisher’s perspective. Following the presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions and engage in debate around the topic.

All staff and postgraduate research students are welcome to attend. Tea and coffee will be provided at the event. Attendance is free but numbers are limited, so please book a place via this link.
