Finnish Guidance on the Responsible Conduct of Research and Procedures for Handling Allegations of Misconduct

What is this about?

In 1994, the Advisory Board formulated the first national guidelines to handle cases of alleged research misconduct. The objective of the guidelines was to recognise research misconduct and to establish common norms for handling alleged misconduct. These guidelines were revised in 1998, 2002 and updated in 2012.[1]

Why is this important?

The Finnish Advisory Board on Research Integrity (TENK), which is appointed by the Ministry of Education and Culture in Finland (Decree 1347/1991), was established to promote the responsible conduct of research, to prevent research misconduct, to promote discussion and to spread information on research integrity in Finland and to monitor international developments in the field of research integrity. The Advisory Board makes proposals and issues statements concerning research integrity.[1]
