Good Research Practice at HHU

"Scientific work is based on fundamental principles which are the same in all disciplines. The first principle amongst these is honesty towards oneself and others. The basic prerequisite for scientific work is the fairness of all researchers. It is here that the University, as a place of research, teaching and support of young scientists, has an institutional responsibility. In the light of these considerations, Heinrich Heine University is pursuing the safeguarding of scientific quality standards, in particular integrity and accuracy in research, as a core responsibility of its members and affiliates."

(Foreword of "Fundamental principles for safeguarding good scientific practice at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf" (cf.: "Grundsätze zur Sicherung guter wissenschaftlicher Praxis an der Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf vom 19. Februar 2014 " in: Amtliche Bekanntmachungen der HHU D 7/2014 und 11/2014)
