This course introduces PhD students from the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences to a range of basic concepts, principles, and norms concerning Responsible Conduct of Research. By stimulating reflection, awareness, and discussion of academic integrity and good scientific conduct, the course contributes to the students’ ability to conduct research in accordance with scholarly and societal rules, principles, and guidelines, as well as current practices at the University of Southern Denmark.

The course addresses scholarly, ethical, and legal aspects of the research process, including: research planning; data management; basic elements of information processing; key elements of scholarly publishing, authoring and authorship.

Facilitating students’ reflections on methodological and ethical questions and requirements in their research, as well as their understanding of wider issues pertaining to research integrity, the course is designed to scaffold the academic socialization that takes place in the various research groups, research centres, departments, and PhD schools.
