The Young Academy are researchers who work in a variety of disciplines, have been selected for their scientific achievements, and received their doctorates less than ten years ago. The ten new members will be inducted into The Young Academy on 22 March 2022. During their five-year membership, they will champion projects focusing on science policy, interdisciplinarity, science and society, and internationalisation.
What is research integrity?
Joeri Tijdink (Meta-research and psychiatry, VU Amsterdam and Amsterdam UMC) attempts to answer this question in his research, which focuses on preventing dubious research practices and improving the trustworthiness of science and scientists. On the one hand, he studies issues that affect individual researchers, such as a healthy research climate and proper supervision. On the other hand, he is interested in the academic system as a whole, for example publication pressure and the fair allocation of research funding.
Tijdink is involved in various interdisciplinary, national and international projects aimed at promoting responsible research practices. He also practices psychiatry. As a member of The Young Academy, he plans to draw positive attention to mental health among young researchers, to explain the importance of a responsible research climate, and to highlight the beauty of science in all its forms.
