Responsible conduct in research and research ethics

Taking on the role of a scientist also means responsible conduct in research. This goes far beyond the questions of good scientific practice and also involves reflecting on the ethical foundations of scientific practice. In this mini-workshop we want to address professional questions and dilemmas that scientists could be confronted with, especially in the context of a career in a very competitive environment.

Open Science and Plan S and what we have to know about it


Gareth O’Neill:Plan S is a bold and ambitious move for researchers to take back control of access to scientific publications. Author retention of copyrights, a funding boycott on hybrid publishing, and a funding cap on publication fees are especially radical. It is now crucial that early-career and senior researchers are heard to develop and implement the principles and make Plan S a success”. (http://eurodoc.net/plan-s)
