Best practice

LARI understands “best practice” as the processes, procedures, and methods that are ethically and legally accepted as appropriate for promoting research integrity.  Best practice includes codes and guidelines for the design, conduct, recording, monitoring, auditing, analysis, and reporting of research. Overall, best practice should be proactive–part of every researcher’s DNA. The aim should always be research that is credible, and protective of the rights, safety, and welfare of participants. Additionally, LARI supports “open science” (open access publishing/platforms and data sharing) as this aligns with the ethical principles of collegiality, beneficence, and stewardship.
