Good scientific practice
Good Scientific Practice (GSP) is essential for public confidence in research evidence and researchers. It protects the reputation and careers of researchers, promotes scientific and economic advancement, and prevents waste of resources and unnecessary adverse impacts on patients and the public.
Guidelines for GSP have been published, for example, by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG) or the Leibniz Association. The LIN has also imposed rules of Good Scientific Practice on itself.
Prof. Dr. Peter Heil is the elected ombudsman of LIN.
In addition, Prof. Dr. Georg Klump from the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg acts as the external ombudsman of the LIN.
