COVID-19 is transforming every aspect of society – and research is no exception. But how can we use what we’ve learned in the past six months to build a better research culture?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers and publishers have pulled together to publish their outputs at an unprecedented rate. How will this change research culture and the way findings are disseminated in future?
At Heart n Soul at The Hub, we believe that anybody can contribute to research, and we’ve tried to create an environment to enable them to do so.
Ricardo Henriques, Group Leader at UCL, looks at how lab leaders can create open and safe spaces for people to discuss any issues in research culture.
Last month, we published the findings of a survey into how researchers feel about the culture they work in. Now, we want to hear your ideas to reimagine research.
Kelly Vere, Director of Technical Skills and Strategy at the University of Nottingham, explains how she's been working to build a better culture for technicians.
As scientists, we try to make sure our research is rigorous so that we can avoid costly errors. We should take the same approach to tackle issues in research culture, says Professor Christopher Jackson.
The findings of our survey of more than 4,000 researchers expose the stark pressures that many face. But together, we can learn from one another’s good practice and come up with new ways to improve research culture.
