With the change to the pro-science Biden administration, many researchers want to help restore science to its rightful place to ensure that it informs policy decisions. In this free webinar hosted by the American Geophysical Union, lawyers from the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund will discuss how principles of scientific freedom and academic integrity can help scientists further these goals.
We’ll talk about what constitutes a scientific integrity violation at federal agencies, universities, and other research institutions, and how those entities handle scientific integrity complaints. We’ll also talk about gaps and weaknesses commonly found in different kinds of scientific integrity policies, and how they can be strengthened. And we’ll discuss the interface of academic freedom principles and scientific integrity and how scientists can rely on academic freedom rights to help them advocate for science.
