Responsible Research 2014

In the name of the organizing team, we would like to thank all the speakers, participants and our helping hands for making this event such a big success!

Videos and presentations from the Breakout Sessions are now available!

The graduate programs of the Life Science Campus Großhadern/Martinsried are jointly hosting an event on responsible research conduct.

All researchers are obliged to conform to rules of Good Scientific Practice. These rules are often implicit – the border between acceptable and unacceptable practice is often unclear.

What is responsible research conduct? How can I present data accurately? What exactly is plagiarism, and how can it be avoided? What are the pros and cons of peer review publication? What is an Ombudsperson?

To raise awareness on these questions 11 life science programs on the Campus Grosshadern/Martinsried and the GraduateCenterLMU have joined forces to organize a campus-wide educational event aimed towards next generation researchers.
