"Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters", Albert Einstein

Cases of outright fraud are rare in science, but what about every day decisions for which the fine line between misconduct and integrity does not become so clear? Imagine you have done several experiments and not all confirm your hypothesis. Do you report them all? Somebody suggests that your paper has a higher chance to be published if you add a leading expert to the author list – what do you do?
In this interactive discussion round we will discuss questionable research practices and find solutions together with the invited experts. In particular we will look at data acquisition, analyses, interpretation and management and publishing.

All doctoral candidates are expected to register - find the registration here.
