Good Scientific Practice

All members of the Clausthal University of Technology are committed to good scientific work. The same is contained in the rules for safeguarding good scientific practice and procedures in case of suspicion of scientific misconduct for the Clausthal University of Technology.

The performance of universities depends to a large extent on the quality of their research. This is why it is particularly important for universities to maintain and promote creativity, critical ability and commitment through an atmosphere of openness, and to take measures to prevent scientific misconduct from arising.

Scientific work serves the gain of knowledge. The honesty of the scientific staff is a basic prerequisite for the quality of scientific work. Good scientific practice must be taught and practiced. Misconduct and fraud damage the reputation of science and scientists.

Scientists are obliged to follow the rules of good scientific practice. At the same time, every university teacher is obliged to impart the principles of scientific work and the rules of good scientific practice to young scientists. The aim of guidance on honesty and responsibility in science is to prevent scientific misconduct.

Ombudsman is Prof. Dr. A. Weber, 05323-72-2309, Institut of Particle Technology, Clausthal University of Technology, Leibnizstraße 19, 38678 Clausthal-Zellerfeld.

Contact the ombudsmann for science, if necessary.

Further information on safeguarding good scientific practice can be found in the DFG Memorandum.
