The Hong Kong Principles for assessing researchers: Fostering research integrity

What is this about?

Five principles to reward researchers' behavior to foster research integrity:

  • responsible research practices;
  • transparent reporting;
  • open science (open research);
  • valuing a diversity of types of research;
  • recognizing all contributions to research and scholarly activity

Why is this important?

"For knowledge to benefit research and society, it must be trustworthy. Trustworthy research is robust, rigorous, and transparent at all stages of design, execution, and reporting. Assessment of researchers still rarely includes considerations related to trustworthiness, rigor, and transparency."

For whom is this important?

What are the best practices?

The document offers a rationale and examples of each of the five principles.
