HONG KONG PRINCIPLES

Best Practices

Below some best practices for applying the Hong Kong Principles are described:


Ottawa Hospital Research Institute

Which HKP does the best practice concern?

Reward the practice of open science

What is the best practice about?

Requiring research institute researchers and staff to include a data sharing statement along with every journal submission or research report

How has the best practice been implemented?

We developed an institutional grass roots open science committee to help gauge the views of the institute’s faculty and staff about sharing data, analytical code and other information along with each journal submission or formal report. We also developed a comprehensive 10 module online data sharing educational program. The organization’s scientific director is preparing to send a formal email to all faculty and staff recommending they take the course which includes a certificate. This could be included in their promotion dossier. We are currently bench marking current (2019) data sharing practices. This program will be implemented in 2021. We will provide a more complete report documenting data sharing implementation in 2021.

Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

Which HKP does the best practice concern?

Assess responsible research practices
Value complete reporting

What is the best practice about?

Within the research community at the ‘Urban Vitality’ Center of Expertise (UV-CoE), the Open Science Support Desk (OSSD) implemented a 14-item Open Science checklist. The checklist was inspired by - and its items are, if possible, explicitly linked to - the REWARD research waste pillars and Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity (2018) articles.

Our direct goal is to monitor progress of adherence to the 14 practices by our researchers. By measuring who experiences hurdles where, we expect to be able to tailor our future OSSD support services and educational activities and improve adherence.

How has the best practice been implemented?

With the support of the UV-CoE’s Board, the checklist is embedded in other OSSD activities, such as a consultation service by data stewards, quantitative and qualitative methodologists, and a web-based Open Science research manual. Inspired by initiatives at e.g. the Berlin Institute of Health, we strive towards using our researchers’ Open Science accomplishments for decisions around hiring and career development. We are currently running a pilot assessment of adherence to the 14 principles on a sample of UV-CoE output. We are liaising with a research group around Dr. Tracey Weissgerber (Berlin) to explore automation of (some) assessments.
