White Paper "Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice"

The DFG recommendations for safeguarding good scientific practice, published in 1998, were used by the research community to initiate and formulate a system of self-regulation that found general consensus. A comprehensive system of self-regulation was set up at every registered research institution based on these recommendations.

An amendment and update to the recommendations was approved by the DFG's General Assembly on 3 July 2013
