Workshop: Good Scientific Practice – Protecting Research Integrity

Workshop “Good Scientific Practice – Protecting Research Integrity”

The major objective of the workshop “Good Scientific Practice – Protecting Research Integrity” is to know and understand the basic rules and values of the responsible conduct of research in all its stages, according to local, national and international regulations and guidelines.
The participants will explore the differences and grey areas between good scientific practice, questionable research practice and scientific misconduct. They will learn how questionable research practices and misconduct can be recognized and prevented, and how and why it should be addressed and dealt with in case it occurs, and what damage it can cause if handled improperly.
The participants will learn how to protect their scientific work and are encouraged to speak with colleagues and supervisors about important issues. They will reflect on the reasons for engaging in good scientific practice and receive instructive materials and links to helpful websites.

The content of the workshop follows the curriculum “Good scientific practice” which was commissioned by and developed in cooperation with the German Research Ombudsman:

•    Definitions of good scientific practice and scientific misconduct
•    Examples, degrees and extent of scientific misconduct
•    Documenting the research process
•    Managing research data and sources
•    Authorship and the process of publication
•    How to deal with scientific misconduct
•    Responsibility and accountability in science
•    Local, national and international guidelines and regulations on good scientific practice and scientific misconduct

The workshop encourages the active involvement of the participants and features case discussions, individual and small group working sessions, plenary discussions, and information input. Additional material and other resources will be provided after the workshop.
