Committee for Good Scientific Practice

It is the policy of the Universität zu Lübeck to investigate every tangible suspicion of scientific misconduct at the university, and the senate has accordingly established a permanent Board of Enquiry on Good Scientific Practice (“UKgwP”) with the ex officio authority to investigate incidents. If UKgwP establishes scientific misconduct, the Council shall take measures at its disposal that are commensurate with the circumstances.

The duty of UKgwP is to check for any scientific misconduct, whereby this task is separate from the issue of the consequences from an academic, civil service or labour law perspective. In case of a conflict, suspected or alleged scientific wrongdoing, or for advice on this issue, scientists at the Universität zu Lübeck are free to seek out the designated good scientific practice counsellors.
