Since a couple of years the importance of rules of good scientific practice is discussed in all scientific communities.
Recently, the “Konferenz der Fachbereiche Physik” (KFP) presented recommendations for good scientific practice during the academic qualification process.
In their paper they refer to the guidelines of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the recommendation of the Hochschulrektorenkonferenz on good scientific practice.
