Jigisha Patel

Affiliate Senior Associate, Research Integrity Consultant

Formerly a medical doctor and academic, Jigisha has spent the last 13 years in scholarly publishing developing my expertise in research integrity. She led the first Research Integrity Group, a team dedicated to maintaining research integrity standards, at BioMed Central and helped to establish the research integrity group at Springer Nature before becoming an independent research integrity consultant.

Jigisha’s skills range from manuscript handling and decision making through to training, policy formulation, project management, research, writing and strategic thinking.

She uses her experience to create and deliver strategies that help to manage, prevent and detect research and publication misconduct and that adapt as challenges to research integrity change.

Jigisha has a particular expertise in medical research and publication manipulation.
