Good scientific practice

In order to maintain public trust in science, researchers are required to always show due diligence.

RUB has introduced guiding principles to ensure good scientific practice. They also include procedures that are to be implemented in case of scientific misconduct allegations.

General code of conduct for RUB members is laid down in the RUB compliance guidelines.

In collaboration with the EU Commission, the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities (ALLEA) has submitted a revised Code of Conduct for Research Integrity.
