Obeying the rules of good research practice is an elemental, if not the most important fundament to carry out research. Therefore, all researchers working at HHU are bound to the DFG recommendations on “Safeguarding Good Research Practice” and the respective guidelines of HHU.

Young researchers come across several tasks and responsibilites when instructing students, supervising doctoral candidates and in parallel carry out their own research tasks. This seminar focuses on several points of interest to be addressed under these circumstances, e.g. concerning documentation, ethical considerations and intellectual property. Specifically the following questions will be addressed:

  •  What is good researcj practice about?
  •  What are my responsibilities?
  •  What are my duties and my rights?
  •  What benefits are there in it for me and my work?
  •  How to prevent unneccessary (extra) workload?
  •  How to prevent problems?
  •  How to deal with problems?

The course is especially designed for researchers in the natural and life sciences as well as people doing empirical research.

With many case study exercises during the workshop, I learned how to resolve issues during research work and where it is right to raise your voice against incorrect scientific practices.

The instructor was very good and gave lots of good examples. Theory was clear and " to the point".
