Scientific integrity

The Faculty of Law adheres to the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity (2018) of the Association of universities in the Netherlands (VSNU). Important values within this Code are honesty, scrupulousness, transparency, independence and responsibility. The Code has established duties of care.

The UG also has its own Regulations for the protection of Academic Integrity, describing which actions must be taken when academic norms are violated. Researchers can discuss presumptions of violation of academic integrity with the especially appointed confidential advisors in their faculties. Violations can also be reported to the UG Academic Integrity Committee.

Good Research Data Management (RDM) is an important requisite for performing scientifically sound research. If a research project uses human subjects, it must be submitted in advance to the Research Ethics Committee of Law. Researchers are also responsible that their research complies with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). For more information about these topics, see the menu.
