Serious cases of scientific misconduct have been reported recently in the media. But beside the most prominent cases several shades of questionable scientific practice might undermine the integrity of the sciences. Based on the recommendations for “Safe Guarding Good Scientific Practice” by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft this course wants to support doctoral students to develop a responsible professional conduct as a researcher.
In this introductory workshop you will gain a general understanding of good scientific practice and scientific misconduct (e.g. plagiarism, fabrication, falsification). We will explore key areas of conflict, critical situations and possible causes of misconduct. Questions regarding data management, documentation and ownership will be addressed, as well as the correct use of references and problem areas in the publication process.
