Headline: Good Scientific Practice

Following the Recommendations of the DFG, the Board of Directors has agreed upon guidelines concerning good scientific practice and has appointed an Ombudsperson for Research Integrity (Andreas Goldthau). The Ombudsperson serves as an impartial mediator and advises the members of the IASS on questions of good scientific practice. One of their tasks is to receive notification of allegations of scientific misconduct in confidence, to evaluate them and, if necessary, to forward them to the competent authorities at the institution and discuss the further course of action. For this purpose, the Ombudsperson has a separate e-mail address: ombudsperson@iass-potsdam.de.
