WHAT IS GOOD SCIENTIFIC PRACTICE?
At the Technical Faculty of IT and Design, good scientific practice is defined as compliance with the Danish Code of Conduct for Research Integrity, which means following the principles of research integrity and the standards of responsible research practice.
The code is based on three overarching principles of research integrity:
- Honesty, to ensure the trustworthiness of research
- Transparency, to ensure the credibility of scientific reasoning
- Accountability, to ensure the reliability of research
The code also lists six basic standards for responsible research practice:
- Research planning and execution
- Data management
