Scientific integrity and social safety
Integrity is of great importance for the quality and credibility of scientific research. All staff and students should deal responsibly with ethical or social issues threatening scientific integrity. But what if you make a mistake, or suspect others to violate scientific integrity consciously or unconsciously?
The FHML/MUMC+ Platform Scientific Integrity (PSI) has launched three roadmaps for scientific integrity and social safety: one for PhD candidates, one for students and one for staff members. Each roadmap provides directions on how to act and who to turn to in case of questions related to potential data breaches, scientific integrity, impartiality, and social safety. By clicking on the links in the roadmaps you will be directed to the website which contains more information about the contact person and/or the procedure. You are invited to speak up about such issues and act when appropriate.
All researchers will face scientific integrity dilemmas. Mistakes are expected, respected, inspected, and corrected. Make it open to discussion; speak up about it!
