In public, "good scientific practice" is often connected with cases of plagiarism when it comes to dissertations. However, this important topic covers a substantially wider spectrum of scientific conduct: dealing with data (including checking, recording, ownership and storage), the publishing process and authorship, responsible supervision, academic cooperation, conflicts of interest and dealing with conflicts. Inappropriate academic behaviour includes inventing or faking data, violating intellectual property (theft of ideas or plagiarism), and sabotaging the research of others. More subtle topics, such as scepticism, critical thinking, reproducibility, handling creativity, the danger of axiomatic assumptions and confirmation bias represent the “heart of good scientific practice”.
This Responsible Conduct in Research workshop provides an introduction to these important topics with an experienced professional trainer, combined with subject-specific input from senior IMPRS-IS and CLS researchers. Further details will be announced.
For IMPRS-IS scholars: this workshop in combination with the 2021 boot camp will earn 3 credit points.
