Good scientific practice
It is recommended to address this topic at the beginning of the doctoral studies. Good scientific practice covers many questions from the daily scientific routine:
- Collecting and storing primary data;
- Dealing with joint research;
- Questions about authorship;
- Authorship in publications;
- Conflict management
The statutes for Good Scientific Practice specify the rules at the Universität Hamburg and apply to all doctoral researchers. It is based on the memorandum published by the DFG (German Research Foundation).
Last but not least – all doctoral researchers must be familiar with and adhere to the regulations of their institution.
The university has established an ombuds office for good scientific practice. If you have any related questions, or you are looking for relevant courses and evening events, it is worth it to have a look at their homepage.
