This course is compulsory for all research students at the Faculty of Science and covers information about general terms of employment, insurance and more.
This course is compulsory for all PhD-students admitted from January 1st 2021, and they will get priority.
The course aims to provide a basic knowledge of research integrity and of research ethics for doctoral students at the Faculty of Science that is relevant during the students’ doctoral studies and in subsequent postdoctoral research in academic or other research institutions.
To support the intended learning outcomes the course addresses:
- Basic normative ethics
- The history of research ethics
- The utility or importance of research
- Risks and burdens for research participants and other affected parties
- Protection of privacy and personal data
- Informed consent and kinds of research where informed consent may be difficult to obtain
- Risk-benefit analysis
- Ethics review
- Good research practice
- Research misconduct
- Publication ethics
- Open science and the FAIR-principles
- Conflicts of interest
- The researcher as an authority and ethical aspects of external engagement
- Relevant legislation
- Issues arising from doing research at a Swedish authority
- Responsible research and innovation
The course is given at 100 per cent, full-time studies, over 2 weeks. We recommend that you set of time for the course, and prioritize the course.
Course dates: 17-28 May, 2021.
Last day to apply: 27 April 2021, or when full.
In this course the student learns to prepare a data management plan and the course intents to give a state of the art overview of (international) standards around data description (metadata), data curation and data citation. The course presents the principles referred to as the FAIR Data Principles: findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. Aiming that data will be made available for re-use and uploaded to a trusted repository, aspects of efficient data collection, documentation of data and data analysis and preparation for publication are discussed and applied in an exercise.
The 3-day course deals with the structure and language of scientific papers and the format of figures, tables and citations. The course gives insights into the publishing process, the role of reviewers and editors, and how open access works. Ethical issues surrounding publishing are also addressed.
The course may not be given until 2022.
The course, which takes three full days, aims to strengthen the students in their roles as a leaders of, or participants in, projects. The course deals with different project structures, key project methods and their possibilities and limitations in practice. The course is taught by an experienced trainer from Wenell Management AB, a consultancy firm specialising in leadership and project management.
The course may not be given until 2022.
The course is given by the internal printing office Media-Tryck.
