For years - and in many countries - I’ve been running a workshop on research and publication ethics where we discuss hypothetical cases.
I do this once a year at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and last year I did it through Zoom, allowing people from around the world to join.
If you’d like to join a workshop on 14 April at 2pm London time. use these Zoom details: https://lshtm.zoom.us/j/99406804102?pwd=c052WUM1SUduZGhVd2IvbjdndXNWZz09
You should also spend a little time reading the cases, which I’ve placed on my website:
I hope to see some of you.
