Inhalt: Research ethics principles are crucial for maintaining research findings' credibility, ensuring participants' safety, and upholding ethical standards in the academic community. Ensuring transparency and integrity in scientific work is a hot topic for the credibility of scientific results in public, the publication in renowned journals, and the funding of scientific projects. Additionally, the advancing inter- and transdisciplinarity of research projects has dramatically stimulated the discussion about general research standards and the credibility of results. Thus, as a doctoral candidate, it is essential to understand the importance of responsible conduct of research. You will be able to understand the fundamental principles and methods of responsible research conduct and how to apply them in your research. This course will teach you about the various ethical considerations involved in the research process and academia. You will also gain knowledge about the responsible conduct of research on, for example, data management, publication practices, peer review, or in supervision. The course will equip you with the competences needed to conduct research responsibly and ethically, enhancing the credibility and impact of your work. Attending this seminar is not only a requirement for doctoral students at Leuphana, according to the exam regulations, but is also an opportunity to develop a strong foundation that will benefit you throughout your academic and professional career. The course is part of the module Engaging with research ethics. The module consists of two parts: 1) the Introductory session for doctoral students and 2) this course on research integrity. All in all, the module covers 150 hours of workload (5 CP). This course covers the majority of 140 hours of workload. In the first phase of the course, we start with a joint in-person introduction of 90 minutes during the Leuphana Graduate School Opening days. In the introduction, you will be able to express your expectations regarding the course content, and meet some of your fellow doctoral candidates. It will also provide the necessary information to succeed in the course. In the second phase of the course, you will in different modes: synchronously in in-person lecturer check-ins and self-organized peer success groups and asynchronously on ten self-learning units. The ten self-learning unit are dedicated to important aspects of responsible research conduct: 1. Introduction to research integrity 2. Research integrity during the research process 3. Scientific misconduct 4. Data and reference management 5. Publishing process and authorship 6. Collaborative research 7. Conflict resolution 8. Mentoring and supervision 9. Research with humans and AI 10. Diversity and inclusion in research During these ten sessions, you will watch video content, explore readings and digital ethics games and work on ten invidual short assignments that link the content to your PhD. Additional time should be planned as preparation and follow-up time, where you prepare readings and meet in small groups with peers to discuss the self-learning sessions. We will meet six times in synchronous online sessions during the semester two discuss the course content and pressing questions. All materials, including the pre-recorded lectures, will be available to all participating doctoral candidates on the Moodle platform.
