Come and learn from renowned Duke scientists and leaders how to minimize the impact of questionable research practices (QRPs) and ensure that research is conducted with rigor and integrity. From sloppy design, disputable research methods, selective reporting of research results, QRPs are defined as behaviors with negative and possibly harmful consequences for the rigor and reproducibility of research, which ultimately undermine the public trust in science. The Duke Office of Scientific Integrity invites faculty, staff and student researchers to an open discussion about some of the most common QRPs in academic research, including figure manipulation, p-hacking and cherry picking. Why are QRPs so common and how can they be overcome?
