Discussion Hubs to Foster Research Integrity


Discussion Hubs to Foster Research Integrity


With this project, we aim to develop and publish guidelines supplementary to the standards of good research practice formulated in the DFG Code of Conduct. The project addresses questions in three areas, which are often sites of contention and are further subject to change through ongoing digital transformations.
Project coordination: Dr. Felix Hagenström

Rather than developing a new set of standards, the project’s core aim is to translate the existing standards stated in the DFG Code of Conduct into operable guidelines. These will take into account the specifics of the various academic disciplines and, where possible, provide guidance across disciplines.

In the first phase, interviews with experts and researchers from specific disciplines will be organised, followed by cross-disciplinary discussion panels as the project advances. The insights thus gained will then be used to develop guidelines tailored to each area that the project addresses. Finally, they will be made accessible as part of an online platform complementary to the DFG Code of Conduct.
