Guidelines and the e-Learning Tool on Good Scientific Practice

Good Scientific Practice is absolutely crucial - when planning and doing experiments, when analysing them, and also when writing the manuscripts and the dissertation!

The Goethe-University guidelines on Good Scientific Practice are available for download here in English or in German.

GRADE developed an e-Learning Tool for Good Scientific Practice.  It will take approximately one hour to complete.  You can interrupt the programme at any time and continue later.  After each module, there is a short quizz.  On successful completion you can print out your certificate.  Please remember that you will need your GRADE membership ID to start.
