Good scientific practice seminar (November 26, 2019)

This seminar presents the basic principles and rules of good scientific practice. Fundamentals of scientific work, i.e. professional standards and documentation of results, are discussed. Further topics are handling of primary data (backup and storing) and scientific publications (authorship and scam journals). Also management of research data, following the FAIR principles is briefly introduced. Recent examples of scientific misconduct illustrate the official procedures at the institutions and possible consequences. The rules apply worldwide and for all subjects and every researcher at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics has to comply with these rules.
