Good scientific practice

Good scientific practice is understood to mean rules on the working methods and behaviour of researchers which serve to ensure scientific honesty. These rules are aimed at respectful and fair dealings between researchers and counteract scientific misconduct.

In implementing these rules, the Leibniz Centre for General Linguistics (ZAS) is guided by the "Guideline for Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice and Dealing with Allegations of Scientific Misconduct in the Leibniz Association" and the Code of Conduct "Guidelines for Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice" of the German Research Foundation (DFG).

In the event of conflicts regarding good scientific practice and questions regarding suspected scientific misconduct, employees can contact the ombudsperson of the ZAS or the Leibniz Association. The ombudspersons take care of information and enquiries independently and confidentially.
