Hong Kong Principles for assessing researchers

The Hong Kong Principles for assessing researchers were formulated and endorsed at the 6th World Conference on Research Integrity, June 2019 in Hong Kong.

The principles have been developed with the idea in mind that their implementation could help to assess researchers for career advancement with a focus on behaviours that strengthen research integrity. 

Five principles were formulated:

  1. assess responsible research practices
  2. value complete reporting
  3. reward the practice of open science
  4. acknowledge a broad range of research activities
  5. recognise essential other tasks like peer review and mentoring

In addition, examples on how to adopt those principles are provided.

 

Both institutions and individuals can endorse the Hong Kong Principles and are listed as endorsing individual or institution.
