Members of The Embassy of Good Science have developed a set of eight scenarios for educational purposes and to stimulate strategic thinking about issues in research ethics and research integrity.

This scenario presents a hypothetical narrative concerning the links between research environments and research integrity.

It focuses on issues regarding:

  • Communication of the standards governing research integrity by universities and research organisations;
  • Environmental pressures to commit research misconduct;
  • Whistleblowing and the monitoring of research misconduct;
  • Barriers to reporting cases of research misconduct;
  • Power imbalances between students/early-career researchers and senior academics.

It is interspersed with questions and resource suggestions that help guide researchers, research ethics committees ('RECs'), research integrity offices ('RIOs') and research administrators in their deliberations concerning the research integrity issues raised by the narrative.
