- Open Scholarship
The Library supports the practice of research, education and knowledge exchange to enable open collaboration and learning.
Open Scholarship and Research Integrity go hand in hand. Open Scholarship aims to promote transparency and reproducibility of results and increase and widen the diffusion of knowledge. In order to maximize the benefits of Open Scholarship, there are several ethical, legal and social challenges.
Research integrity addresses these challenges. It relates to the performance of research to the highest standards of professionalism and rigour, and to the accuracy and integrity of the research record in publications and elsewhere.
Pillar at University of Galway
The University of Galway promotes the responsible conduct of research and the responsible management of research across all disciplines and has devised a Research Integrity policy to that effect.
Free online training courses in Research Integrity are available to all research staff and students at the University of Galway. The courses are provided by Epigeum (Oxford University Press), with tailored courses according to career stage and discipline.
