Take control of your PhD journey: Academic integrity

Think like an academic – work like an academic

When carrying out a PhD research project, we need to be familiar with and follow the norms of academic integrity. This includes perhaps first and foremost the use of other sources, e.g. how to treat these as to avoid plagiarising. But moreover, academic integrity includes being aware of, and preventing, academic misconduct and other questionable research practices. Finally, the notion of academic integrity has in recent years extended to include the benefits of transparency of science, both for the research community and for society in general.

The University Library, daily working with questions revolving around academic integrity and open science, hereby invites all PhD students to an interactive seminar, where primary focus will be on the following issues:

  • Academic conduct: the awareness and balancing of expectations and pressures in academia
  • Use of sources: plagiarism, advantages of correct use of sources, and how to do it
  • Research data: why share? A hot topic at UiT these days, with the launch of UiT Open Research Data


In order for us to best prepare for the seminar, we invite you to fill out a short questionnaire about your PhD project, which you can find here.

We will expect all participants to prepare for the seminar by reading an article related to the above-mentioned topics. More information about this will be sent out well in advance of the seminar.

This seminar is organised by Helene N. Andreassen and Lene Østvand.

Light refreshments will be served during the break.

This seminar is a freestanding part of the seminar series Take control of your PhD journey: From (p)reflection to publishing.
