Beyond Bad Apples: Towards a Behavioral and Evidence-Based Approach to Promote Research Ethics and Research Integrity in Europe

The main goal of the BEYOND project is to robustly explore and advance individual and institutional responsibilities in RM and in the promotion of RE/RI.

The goal is achieved by developing co-created, needs-and-case-based, streamlined, and best practices-based measures meant to engage, guide, and equip research-related stakeholders through guidance and educational instruments. BEYOND adopts a complex ecosystemic perspective on research ethics and integrity that recognizes the multiple responsibilities of researchers and other stakeholders to enrich the overly simplistic Bad Apples approach that underpins most existing measures to prevent research misconduct.
