What does research integrity mean? From the perspectives of a researcher, a reviewer, and an editor

Peer Review Week 2022 (Sep 19-23), powered by Editage and Researcher.Life, was bigger than ever with exciting discussions with KOLs in academia and the scholarly publishing community. This year’s Peer Review Week theme, Research Integrity: Creating and Supporting Trust in Research, was chosen from a global open poll. The popularity of the issue underscores the need for the scholarly community to address it in depth. CACTUS has been involved with Peer Review Week since the beginning. However, Peer Review Week 2022 was more special as CACTUS co-chaired the event, shedding light on the crucial role of peer review in upholding research integrity.

A cornerstone of scholarly publishing, peer review is a complex process with researchers, reviewers, and editors all playing crucial roles in ensuring research integrity. But do these three pillars of academia view peer review the same way? What are their processes, perspectives, and expectations from peer review? This panel discussion with Sun Huh (Professor, Department of Parasitology, College of Medicine, Hallym University, Chuncheon, Korea; President, Korean Council of Science Editors), Karishma Kaushik (Assistant Professor/Ramalingaswami Re-entry Fellow, Department of Biotechnology, Savitribai Phule Pune University, India), Thomas Agbaedeng (Novo Nordisk Research Fellow at the University of Oxford), and Sneha Kulkarni (Editor-in-Chief, Editage Insights & Steering Committee Member, Peer Review Week 2022) offers a unique insight into the minds of an editor, a reviewer, and a researcher as they navigate through the process of peer review.
