About us Faculty of Law Research Scientific integrity

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 for research.

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, but also questions and doubts, with the especially appointed confidential advisors in the faculty. The advisors of the Faculty of Law are: Prof. Dr. A.R. Mackor for all employees and Prof. Dr. P.C. Westerman for the PhD students.

The Scientific Research and Ethics Committee (Commissie Wetenschapsbeoordeling en Ethiek, CWB). has drawn up guidelines for co-authorship, together with explanatory notes.

The Research Ethics Review Committee (CETOR) is responsible for the ethical review of research. This includes Research Data Management and the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
