Take control of your PhD journey: Academic integrity and the transparency of science
We would like to inform that next semester, the seminar series Take control of your PhD journey, which includes this seminar, will be offered as a PhD course with 2 ECTS credits. (updated 05.10.2017)
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 plagiarism. 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 aim of this seminar is to understand the importance of academic integrity for the different stages of the research process, and for science in general. With transparency as a guiding principle, the focus is on the whys and hows of using/creating sources correctly, both research papers and research data.
This seminar is a freestanding part of the seminar series Take control of your PhD journey: From (p)reflection to publishing.
