Honesty and fairness are basic requirements in science. Each MHH researcher must commit to these principles with respect to his/her own research. To prevent potential scientific misconduct, the German Science Foundation (DFG) established guidelines on good scientific practice that have found their way into all fields of research.

In times of limited financial resources and increasing competition in science, it is of utmost importance to consistently keep up the rules on good scientific practice. In this context, the Hannover Medical School continuously provides various training courses on good scientific practice to students and researchers.

"The principles of Hannover Medical School on the safeguarding of good scientific practice and procedural rules for dealing with scientific misconduct" provides the basic rules effective at the MHH. The current version of the principles was adpoted by the MHH senate on July 8th, 2022. It is binding for all MHH employees, students, and affiliates.
