Amsterdam  Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen (KNAW) Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek: Dilemma’s en Verleidingen. J.

3 3 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Utrecht University: Mission - to provide young people with an academic education - to train new generation of researchers - to train academics able to combine knowledge and professional skills - to carry out groundbreaking research - to contribute to solutions to social questions

4 4  Utrecht University: Core Values for Students and Employees - inspiration: role models - ambition: development - independence: nurture talent - commitment: work, learn and discover together INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)

5 5 Research masters  Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences  Nanomaterials: Chemistry and Physics  Drug Innovation  Geochemistry  Immunity and Infection Code of Conduct applicable

6 6 Applied masters  Science Education & Communication  Science and Business Management Code of Conduct applicable

7 7 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Dillema’s and temptations: science - scrupulousness: precision, nuance, etc. - reliability: no omissions, pertinent analyses and statistics - verifiability: reproducibility, accuracy, etc. - impartiality: no other interest than scientific interest - independence: inevitable restrictions much be known

8 8 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Dillema’s and temptations: Casus 1 (chemistry) - ‘then a miracle occurs’

9 9 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Casus 1: Fleischmann (UK) and Pons (USA) - cold (nuclear) fusion via electrolysis - ‘potentially a new energy source’: irreproducible - incorrect scientific approach and … (competence?)

10 10 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Dillema’s and temptations: Casus 2 (physics) - ‘.. we can’t just take it on faith..’

11 11 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Casus 2: Schön, Bell Labs, Lucent Techn : ca. one paper each week!! - results made up; no real empirical data in ca. 24 papers! - Schön: alleged brilliant and productive physicist!! - Schön successful, others were not; many well-known recognized co-authors

12 12 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Dillema’s and temptations: Casus 3 (psychology) - ‘.. you don’t look like an experimental psychologist..’

13 13 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Casus 3: Diekstra (Netherlands) pages copied without any source reference - author popular psychology book - plagiarism, violation of copyright

14 14 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Dillema’s and temptations: Casus 4 (medicine) -‘.. Next an example of the very same procedure when done correctly..’

20 20 INTEGRITY (Code of Conduct)  Good practice with regard to societal issues  Good practice in science  A life long learning GO FOR IT ….. SUCCESS!
