Good scientific practice seminar (November 20, 2018)

Every scientist doing research at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and Leipzig University has to comply with the rules of good scientific practice.

In this workshop principles of good scientific practice, e.g. professional standards such as honesty and openness, as well as data preparation and documentation will be discussed.
