Good scientific practice guidelines

ECMI has committed itself to observe and to safeguard good practice in science, while doing practice-oriented research and action-oriented projects. Over the past several years there has been a growing awareness at ECMI with regard to the quality assurance and quality control of its practice-oriented research processes and products as well as products and processes of action-oriented activities, which has directed increased attention to the formalisation of such procedures. These procedures refer in particular to good practice in research, accountability, professional responsibility, ethical principles, dissemination and exploitation of results, as well as quality control and assurance in publications.

The principal sources of these guidelines, code of conduct and relevant compliance are: the EU Charter for Researchers [1]; the German Recommendations of the Commission of Professional Self Regulation in Science: Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice [2] ; and the Danish Committee on Scientific Dishonesty, the Sub-committee for Research in Cultural and Social Sciences (UKSF)[3].
