I have been constantly harassed by superiors to modify data in order to
provide better agreement with known experimental values in order to make
the paper look better for publishing at prestigious journals.
The Bullied Into Bad Science campaign is an initiative by early career
researchers (ECRs) for early career researchers who aim for a fairer, more
open and ethical research and publication environment.
”

Background
• Elsevier/JISC negotiations (mid 2016) - FAIL
• Discussions at the University of Cambridge (end 2016) - mixed results
• Informal discussions with pro VC (start 2017) - FAIL
• Going public with #BulliedIntoBadScience (June 2017)
4
Success?
• Corina just won a Shuttleworth Flash Grant for #BulliedIntoBadScience! WIN
• Numbers: 135 ECRs have signed it - 71 non-ECRs support it - ?
• Feedback - WIN (all good, no bad)
• In Cambridge - FAIL. (But that doesn’t matter, as long as others benefit. It
never was meant to be a Cambridge thing anyway) …
• … Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) in Cambridge: “No way on
God’s earth” - FAIL
5
Continuing the fight
• Approach prominent academics directly.
• Evidence to the UK Parliament Science and Technology Committee inquiry
on Research Integrity.
• Update our web page, translations, regular blog posts, ….
• Bring the discussion about DORA to the Regent House (University of
Cambridge)?
6
ECR struggle
• And my day job? Why do ECR need to fight for better, open and more
trustworthy research?
• What’s the impact on being an open activist on my career? Good, IMHO!
• So much work, so little time. There are too many fights to pick - pick the
battles that matter most to you.
• There are multiple ways to fight any battle, and often several are needed in
parallel: official procedure and community efforts.
• No researcher is too junior to fix science!

I won't be #BulliedIntoBadScience! - Laurent Gatto - OpenCon 2017

  • 3. http://BulliedIntoBadScience.org/ I have been constantly harassed by superiors to modify data in order to provide better agreement with known experimental values in order to make the paper look better for publishing at prestigious journals. The Bullied Into Bad Science campaign is an initiative by early career researchers (ECRs) for early career researchers who aim for a fairer, more open and ethical research and publication environment. ” 3
  • 4. Background • Elsevier/JISC negotiations (mid 2016) - FAIL • Discussions at the University of Cambridge (end 2016) - mixed results • Informal discussions with pro VC (start 2017) - FAIL • Going public with #BulliedIntoBadScience (June 2017) 4
  • 5. Success? • Corina just won a Shuttleworth Flash Grant for #BulliedIntoBadScience! WIN • Numbers: 135 ECRs have signed it - 71 non-ECRs support it - ? • Feedback - WIN (all good, no bad) • In Cambridge - FAIL. (But that doesn’t matter, as long as others benefit. It never was meant to be a Cambridge thing anyway) … • … Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) in Cambridge: “No way on God’s earth” - FAIL 5
  • 6. Continuing the fight • Approach prominent academics directly. • Evidence to the UK Parliament Science and Technology Committee inquiry on Research Integrity. • Update our web page, translations, regular blog posts, …. • Bring the discussion about DORA to the Regent House (University of Cambridge)? 6
  • 7. ECR struggle • And my day job? Why do ECR need to fight for better, open and more trustworthy research? • What’s the impact on being an open activist on my career? Good, IMHO! • So much work, so little time. There are too many fights to pick - pick the battles that matter most to you. • There are multiple ways to fight any battle, and often several are needed in parallel: official procedure and community efforts. • No researcher is too junior to fix science! 7
