European Network of Research Integrity Offices Recommendations for the Investigation of Research Misconduct

What is this about?

The European Network of Research Integrity Offices (ENRIO) Handbook is a set of recommendations or things to consider regarding how to deal with research misconduct and how to protect those involved in the investigation based on experiences and lessons learned by member organizations within ENRIO, allowing for local or national differences in its implementation.

Why is this important?

While the European Code of Conduct is focused on research integrity (RI) in a broader sense, this ENRIO Handbook aims to offer further specifics on section 3.2 of the Code “Dealing with Violations and Allegations of Misconduct”. The Handbook consists of detailed practical recommendations on how to deal with research misconduct and other unacceptable practices.

On the European level, research integrity is much more on the agenda compared to 10-15 years ago. This leaves room for soft harmonization which is one of the main purposes of this Handbook.
