Academic Integrity & Ethics Review

Scientific integrity is an important element in the PhD trajectory, and is addressed in several different settings.

The introductory meeting for new PhD candidates includes a component on scientific integrity, they sign the Code of Conduct on Academic Integrity, they take a course on scientific integrity, and the PhD degree award ceremony comes with an explicit exhortation to heed the obligations to society and to science that the degree entails.

Scientific integrity course for PhD candidates

The course consists of an online lecture to be viewed at your convenience, followed by a 90-minute workshop at institute level. The lecture and the workshop are offered twice yearly, once in the fall term and once in the spring term.

The first workshop at the Faculty of Archeology is scheduled for the first six months in 2021. We will be informed about this as soon as possible.

Ethics Committee

The Ethics Committee of the Faculties of Humanities and Archaeology gives binding advice on ethical issues in research. Using the checklist, researchers are to determine whether their research needs to be presented to the committee for an ethics review. If your research has important social science components, you may consider contacting the ethics committee of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences instead; please discuss this with your supervisors.
