Graduate School of Social and Behavioural Sciences
The integrity and reliability of academic research are of fundamental importance to the University. All parties, both within the University and outside, must be able to have confidence that our research is conducted in a scrupulous, fair, verifiable, impartial and independent manner.
Scientific Conduct Course
A number of cases of scientific fraud and misconduct were bad publicity for the scientific world. Are these cases signs of a system in crisis or just some anomalies in an otherwise good scientific framework?
To make sure you receive appropriate training regarding academic integrity, you are required to follow the course ‘Scientific Conduct for PhDs’. This course pays attention to the grey area and your role as an individual scientist to prevent misconduct. Please also see the information on required coursework.
