Multidisciplinary Research Impact and Research Excellence Workshop

August 23 @ 13:00 - 17:00

WASP-HS is arranging a workshop on impact and excellence in multidisciplinary research. The workshop is open to all researchers within the program.

The workshop starts out with two keynotes by Professor Ana Marušić and Associate Professor Björn Hammarfelt upon which the group will be divided in smaller groups to discuss the topic. A break, including coffee, will take place at 15. The workshop ends at 17. The aim of the workshop us to write a joint manifesto.


Ana Marušić: Responsible Research in a Multidisciplinary Environment
Responsible research is defined as the practice of scientific investigation with integrity. Research integrity is a term that is increasingly used to define the attitude and habit of the researchers to conduct research according to ethical, legal and professional frameworks, obligations and standards. It is different from research ethics, which studies moral problems that arise in doing research. This talk will address the main principles of research integrity as outlined in the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity: reliability, honesty, respect and accountability. it will also briefly describe good research practices to foster research integrity, and the role of researchers and their organizations in fostering responsible research. Special attention will be given good practices in training supervision and mentoring, and collaborative working, where responsible research is needed to cross different barriers – disciplinary, geographical, economic, social, cultural. Principles outlined in the Montreal statement on Research Integrity in Cross-Boundary Research Collaborations will be discussed in relation to establishing, managing and disseminating the results of collaborative research.

She is an Honorary Professor at the University of Edinburgh in the UK and Co-Editor in Chief of the Journal of Global Health. Prof. Marušić is on the Steering Group of the EQUATOR Network and Co-Chair of the Cochrane Scientific Committee.

She currently serves on the Council of the Publication Ethics (COPE).

Prof. Marušić’s research interest include evidence-based medicine and research integrity. She has published more than 300 peer-reviewed publications and was heavily involved with creating the policy of mandatory registration of clinical trials in public registries which helped change the legal regulation of clinical trials worldwide. She has participated in several EU projects related to research integrity and responsible research and innovation.

Björn Hammarfelt: The evaluative landscape of academia: A field guide for interdisciplinary researchers
In this talk you will be guided through parts of the contemporary evaluative landscape of academia. An introduction is given to the many assessment practices, from evaluation of grants and publications through peer review to metrics and rankings, which are part of the everyday life of researchers. Continuing the exploration we will focus specifically on the particular challenges of evaluating inter/transdisciplinary research. The tour ends by highlighting the political and practical implications of assessment procedures on both a collective and individual level.

Bio: Björn Hammarfelt is Associate Professor at the Swedish School of Library and Information Science (SSLIS), University of Borås. His research is situated at the intersection of information studies and sociology of science, with a focus on the organisation, communication and evaluation of research. Hammarfelt’s most recent work has focused on evaluation practices in academia, with particular emphasis on bibliometric measurement and its effects on knowledge production and working conditions.
