Guidelines for Good Research Practice

Honesty in the search for truthful findings and the fair treatment of all colleagues and people involved in the process of academic work form the basis for a valid and ethically responsible research practice.

The Guidelines for Good Research Practice of the Leibniz Institute for Educational Media | Georg Eckert Institute (henceforth: “GEI”) lay out the rules of good research practice for the institute’s staff, for both researchers and research support staff alike. It provides appropriate procedures and measures to guard against scientific misconduct or malpractice or unreasonable demands and expectations that may be made of GEI employees. It is also intended to raise awareness of problems in both theory and practice, and to support others in engaging in critical reflection on their actions.

The ‘Guidelines for Good Research Practice‘ (the English translation of the „Leitlinien zur Sicherung guter wissenschaftlicher Praxis am Leibniz-Institut für Bildungsmedien | Georg-Eckert-Institut”) is provided for information purposes only; the German version is authoritatively binding.
