Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice

Leibniz University Hannover attaches key importance to observing the rules of good scientific practice in order to maintain high scientific standards in research. To avoid dishonesty and deception, Leibniz University Hannover has therefore established a two-stage procedure for professional self regulation in science. Where there is a suspected case of scientific misconduct, members of the university can turn to a mediator, who will conduct a first inquiry into the allegations. If the allegation is well founded, the case will be investigated by an independent commission of inquiry, taking all available evidence into account and conducting a hearing of the persons involved. If the allegations are proved to be true, the university authorities will apply the relevant sanctions.

The Guidelines for Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice adopted by Leibniz University Hannover are based on the recommendations for safegarding good scientific practice issued by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
