Dr. Peter Schröder


Safeguarding the rules of good scientific practice is an elementary, if not the most fundamental prerequisite to carry out scientific projects. Therefore, all scientists have to follow those rules.

Doctoral researchers working on their doctoral projects need to address several topics in regard to good scientific practice, e.g. documentation, self-criticism, ethical considerations and plagiarism.

This workshop will address the following topics:

  • What is „gute wissenschaftlicher Praxis“ / „good scientific practice“ about?
  • In how far am I involved in it during my doctoral project?
  • What are my duties and what are my rights?
  • Is there a benefit for me?
  • How to prevent/minimize the additional workload?
  • What to do if problems arise?
  • How to prevent problems!


In addition, topics and questions provided by the participants will also be integrated into the workshop to enable the doctoral candidates to implement good scientific practice into their projects.


Registrations are welcome until 7 June 2020 via our online portal. We will then determine whether the minimum number of 6 participants has been reached. Should the minimum number of participants not have been reached, the event will not take place due to financial reasons. Once the minimum number of participants has been reached, further registrations are possible until 8 days previous to the beginning of the event.
