The Editors of the 4 Human Reproduction Journals
In an era where the frontiers of science and technology are rapidly evolving, it has become increasingly vital to address the nuances of scientific misconduct and integrity. During this pre-congress workshop organized by the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) Journals Editors, we delve into a critical discourse that is shaping the very essence of scientific discovery.
Over the past decade, the scientific community has witnessed a growing awareness and emphasis on issues related to scientific misconduct and integrity. The quest for transparency, accountability, and ethical conduct in research has gained unprecedented momentum. This workshop serves as a platform to explore and understand the recent notions and developments in this ever-evolving landscape and underscores the paramount importance of these issues in contemporary scientific publishing.
The digital age has ushered in new challenges and opportunities. While technology has facilitated research, it has also created novel avenues for misconduct. This workshop not only acknowledges the challenges but also recognizes the solutions technology can offer. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a powerful tool in tracing, tracking, and maintaining the integrity of scientific work. Through advanced algorithms and data analysis, AI can aid in the identification of plagiarism, data manipulation, and even fraud but unfortunately also may contribute to misconduct.
This meeting features a distinguished panel of eminent contributors. Leading journal editors, who play a pivotal role in shaping the scientific narrative, will share their insights. Authorities from institutes involved in regulation will provide valuable perspectives on how to maintain the highest ethical standards in research. Furthermore, AI experts will shed light on the transformative role technology can play also in the context the lab and the office of the Reproductive Medical Practice. As we listen to scientists with various personal experiences, we gain a profound understanding of the challenges they face and the solutions they envision.
Through engaging discussions, collaborative learning, and the exchange of experiences, this workshop aims to equip all participants with a deeper appreciation of the complexities surrounding scientific misconduct and integrity. Our collective effort in addressing these issues will not only foster a culture of responsibility and transparency but also strengthen the foundation of scientific publishing in an age defined by technology.
We welcome you to a day of enriching discourse, enlightenment, and collaboration.
