Good Scientific Practice



The University of Bonn has established binding guidelines to ensure good academic practice and appropriate handling of accusations of academic misconduct. Independent committees ensure that cases of suspected academic misconduct are investigated according to national and international standards. The guidelines on good scientific practice are binding for all our researchers and are therefore conveyed at an early stage to students and junior researchers within our research-oriented teaching and qualification offers
