Rules for upholding good scientific practice
The Rules for Upholding Good Scientific Practice at Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH have been in force since 1 January 2002.
The head of each organizational unit is responsible for ensuring that those affected are familiar with the contents of the set of rules and the responsibilities derived from them.
The Board of Directors has appointed the following ombudsmen as required by Regulation 5:
- Prof. Dr. Astrid Kiendler-Scharr (Spokesperson)
- Prof. Dr. Heiner Müller-Krumbhaar
- Prof. Dr. Uwe Pietrzyk
In the late 1990s, a serious case of scientific misconduct caused the German Research Foundation (DFG) to review existing mechanisms of scientific self-regulation and to give recommendations for safeguarding them. The Helmholtz Association took up the DFG "Self-Regulation in Science" commission’s suggestions for upholding good scientific practice and issued its own framework provisions for its member institutions based on these suggestions.
