New scientists aspire to contribute to their disciplines by conducting interesting research and publishing their findings to advance science. As part of their training, they are not only responsible for learning and understanding the technical aspects of their scientific work but the fundamental expectations and obligations in its honest execution. Responsible conduct of research and publication ethics can sometimes be challenging. While most researchers may feel they have a good grasp of what they are responsible for and how to avoid misconduct, there are a lot of gray areas that could inadvertently lead them down the wrong path. This interactive talk will aim to address questions that arise as research is conducted, submitted to journals, peer reviewed, and ultimately published. It will also give an overview on the standard forms of misconduct (and how to avoid them) as well as provide answers to questions surrounding authorship and what constitutes a publication.
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. ￼￼
