Good scientific practice
Scientific integrity forms the basis for trustworthy research. It is an example of academic voluntary commitment that encompasses a respectful attitude towards peers, research participants, animals, cultural assets, and the environment, and strengthens and promotes vital public trust in research. The constitutionally guaranteed freedom of research is inseparably linked to a corresponding responsibility. Taking this responsibility into full account and embedding it in individual conduct is an essential duty for every researcher and for the institutions where research is carried out. The research community itself ensures good practice through fair and honest attitudes and conduct as well as organisational and procedural regulations. (DFG Code of Conduct 2019: 7)
At TUK, the guidelines of the German Research Foundation (DFG) are the basis for good scientific practice. The most recent version always applies. You can find these guidelines and further information here: www.dfg.de/en/research_funding/principles_dfg_funding/good_scientific_practice/index.html
An ombudsman committee has been set up to ensure compliance with this guideline at TUK. Further information such as the rules of procedure and additional links can be found here: www.uni-kl.de/en/ueber-die-tuk/organisation/university-bodies/ombuds-committee-good-scientific-practice
