Against Scientific Misdemeanour

For the first time, in March, all "Ombudsmen for Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice" from the 18 Helmholtz centres have met to exchange experiences and to further develop the standards of their work. They are contact persons in the event of scientific misdemeanour, for example, in the event of suspicion of data falsification, theft of ideas and the ignoring of authorship. At the meeting, Prof. Wolfgang Löwer, Spokesman of the "Ombudsman für die Wissenschaft" (Ombudsman for Science), provided valuable tips. This independent body was instituted by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and is there for all scientists in Germany for all questions pertaining to good scientific practice.
