Ethics reside at the core of the research process, motivating inquiry, guiding practice, and promoting an ethos of accountability and equity. Organized by Professor Chris ChoGlueck, this series in Research Ethics aims to support and improve ethics among our research community by offering workshops that foster more awareness and deliberation and build a network of support. In 2022-23, we will continue to facilitate conversations about ethics & integrity in research among the NMT research community.

Next Event: The Power of Authorship

What are team power dynamics?

How can researchers navigate them?

Dr. Dan Cadol (Earth & Env. Science) and Dr. Chris ChoGlueck (CLASS) will co-facilitate an interactive workshop, featuring a series of case studies about fairness & team power dynamics in authorship decisions. This is part of the Research Ethics @NMT 2022-23 series, sponsored by the Office of Research. The workshop covers the functions of authorship, emerging criteria for authorship in different disciplines, and tips for understanding and navigating hierarchies. The workshop will be especially relevant for students and early-career researchers, as well as senior researchers who want to be more inclusive and fair in their leadership practices. The event is free and open to students, faculty, staff, and the whole NMT community, and we will provide snacks.  

When: Tuesday Feb. 14, 11 AM - 12:30 PM
