“[…] the DFG has developed the following principles which it offers as recommendations, both to its member institutions and to all other institutions and individuals that receive funding from the DFG to finance early-career researchers.

These principles are to be understood as a supplement to the guidelines for safeguarding good research practice. They summarise how the situation of researchers in early career phases should be structured and are especially applicable to doctoral and post-doctoral students.

[DFG] Doctoral programme lengths and doctoral degrees in DFG-funded consortia

Written by

“Doctoral programme lengths and doctoral degrees are highly relevant to research policy, but information on them is scarce. In two statistical reports, the DFG analyses data on doctorates completed in the context of Collaborative Research Centres, Research Training Groups, Clusters of Excellence and Graduate Schools.” (from DFG)

Quality Assurance in Medical Doctorates (new UniWiND publication)

Written by

The recent UniWiND publication Volume 11 presents the results of the UniWiND working group “Quality Assurance in Medical Doctorates”, which worked from 2018-2020. The working group has devoted itself to the special features of doctoral studies in medicine, which, in contrast to doctorates in other subjects, are usually carried out during studies and for this reason are often the subject of criticism. Quality assurance plays an even more important role.

In order to investigate the framework conditions and existing measures for quality assurance, the workgroup conducted a survey, which was answered by the majority of medical faculties in Germany. The result of the evaluation of this survey as well as science policy publications is this volume, in which the AG formulates recommendations for each phase in the doctoral process and presents Promising Practices.
