We will host our annual Harvest Day on the 4th of November. Central questions of the afternoon will be: what is good science, how does it relate to recent developments in research integrity, and what is the role of diversity in good science? We look forward to seeing you!

Event details of AISSR Harvest Day 2021
Date 4 November 2021
Time 12:00 -17:30
AISSR Harvest Day Inaugural Edition of 2014
AISSR Harvest Day Inaugural Edition of 2014

Join us for an afternoon filled with discussions about the value of interdisciplinarity, good science, and academic practice. We will serve lunch and drinks, and will have ample space for getting to know old and new colleagues. We hope to see you there!

A central theme during the afternoon will be "Achieving Good Science". What is good science according to academics and how does this occur in the daily practices of the various disciplines we host at the AISSR? What tensions and dilemmas do we see in our daily work? How can we promote "Good Science"? How does it relate to recent developments in research integrity? And what is the role of diversity in good science?

Theme: Good science

The keynote lecture and the panel debate will revolve around the question: What is good science? We base this part of the programme on the recently published report "Goede wetenschap: Een visie van binnenuit", written by a.o. prof. dr. Jeanette Pols and prof. dr. Amade M'charek. 

Increasingly, universities are putting policies in place to promote research integrity. But the point of view of academics is often overlooked.

In the ethnographic study 'Good science [Goede wetenschap]', Jeanette Pols and a team of researchers investigated what good science means in and for different disciplines. 

How do they shape good science in their daily work? What obstacles do they encounter to realize good science? The results of the research show that the problems with scientific integrity should not primarily be sought in individual scientists, but in the conditions under which they operate. 

During Harvest Day, 'Achieving good science' will be one of the central themes. We start with a contribution by Jeanette Pols, one of the authors of the report 'Achieving good science – a cross disciplinary study', followed by a panel debate. Speakers include: Annette Freyberg-Inan (moderator), Amade M'charek, Erella Grassiani, Michaela Hordijk & Justus Uitermark.
