As a former journal editor responsible for journal policy, Jane Alfred maintains a deeply held interest in working with the biology and biomedical community on research integrity, research practice and publication ethics.

Jane Alfred, Director & Co-founder of Catalyst Editorial, offers a range of training services to Institutes and Universities on research integrity, responsible research practice, peer review and publication ethics, often collaborating with senior staff to develop training programmes that meet the needs of their staff and researchers. Training can include presentations, meetings and interactive workshops, and working with institutes to develop policies in each area. Training and presentations can also be tailored to suit different audiences – from policy makers and senior investigators, to early career researchers.

Topics covered in research integrity and responsible research practice training can include:


  • What research integrity and responsible research practice are and why they matter
  • Where different responsibilities lie in the research integrity landscape
  • Community responses to research misconduct and poor research practices
  • Publication ethics: who is responsible for publication ethics, what ethical publication practices consist of, and common problems
