Press the refresh button: using research integrity and open science for researcher assessment
Introducing the Hong Kong Principles and the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) guidance for academic institutions.

This workshop is an introduction to researcher assessment. A presentation examining the current metrics used to assess researchers will be followed by an introduction to the Hong Kong Principles (HKPs). The principles were developed as part of the 6th World Conference on Research Integrity (2019) with a specific focus on the need to drive research improvement through ensuring that researchers are explicitly recognized and rewarded for behaviors that strengthen research integrity. Some aspects of the HKPs focus on the inclusion of open science (OS) practices for research assessment. The Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) guidance for academic institutions focuses on examining the extent of OS practices within organizations.

Facilitated by David Moher
