Research Integrity

Research Integrity is more than prevention of scientific misconduct – research integrity offers guidelines for professional research. Since the amendment of the “Ordnung zum Promotionsstudium ‘Literary Studies – Literaturwissenschaftliche Studien’“ in March 2020, it is mandatory for PhD candidates to obtain one Credit Point in the field of “Good Academic Practice“ (Gute wissenschaftliche Praxis (GWP)).

You can choose either one of the alternating suitable courses [German] at Dahlem Research School (DRS) or Humboldt Graduate School (HGS). Alternatively, you can participate in an online course, which DRS offers in cooperation with GRADE – the Graduate Academy of the Goethe University Frankfurt.

Online Tool “Good Academic Practice during Doctoral Studies“

“How should research results be documented? What is the right way to cite? How does one handle image sources?“ Answers to questions like these are provided in the eLearning course “Good Academic Practice“.

Five modules are available, containing comprehensive information, tests to check the knowledge gained as well as supplementary information material.

Doctoral researchers of Freie Universität Berlin have access to the following eLearning offer, developed by GRADE, the (post)graduate academy of Goethe University Frankfurt.

Access to the online course

Please contact your Graduate School's office to receive access to the course in the form of a license key. Please note that the name used for registration will automatically appear on the certificate upon successful completion; therefore, please do not use an alias or similar.
