Why goodness and integrity in research matters, and perhaps most

Author: Jan Helge Solbakk
Chair: Stef Groenewoud
Thursday September 9, 2021
14:00 - 15:00, Aula UMF

In this key note I will address four interrelated questions: What is this ‘thing’ called goodness? Second, what kind – or type - of goodness should we strive for in research? Third, why does goodness in research matter? Fourth, what kind of goodness matters most in research, and why? These questions will be addressed by introducing a typology of goodness making it possible to differentiate between 6 distinct types of goodness. In addition, a distinction between the doing and the being of a researcher will be made use of to answer these questions.
