We are reminded constantly — by funders, by policy makers, and by our own researchers — of the need to incentivise a positive research culture. There is no question that we all want this, but how do we make it happen in practice? Changing culture requires a range of aligned approaches, a lot of patience, as well as creative ways of measuring whether we are moving in the right direction. This paper summarises the outcome of an event that brought together around 60 researchers, funders, policy makers, research managers and representatives from the publishing industry to identify the practical actions that promote a positive research culture; that is, one in which good practice and collegiality are the norm. This briefing is based on the experience of the University of Glasgow of assessing and furthering research culture, but our observations are relevant to all institutions. The question set for our first survey on research culture is also open for others to use or adapt.
