Good Scientific Practice

Course Description:The objective of our course „Good Scientific Practice“ is to familiarize young researchers with the basic rules and values of responsible conduct in research, according to local (Jülich, Helmholtz), national (DFG) and international regulations and guidelines. We will highlight the grey areas between good scientific practice, questionable research practice and scientific misconduct. Participants will learn how misconduct can be recognized and prevented, and will get to know the procedures to address and deal with suspicions of scientific misconduct.
Specific issues of research ethics, which will be discussed in the course are the involvement of human participants, research on animals, and environmental protection. Best practice procedures and the relevant guidelines for these research methods will be introduced.
