Module 3: Research data management
Intellectual property rights standards, rights and duties.

Module 4: Conflicts of interest and commitment
Communication with the public.


The course curriculum consists of the e-book, RCR – A Danish textbook for courses in Responsible Conduct of Research, by Karsten Klint Jensen, Louise Whiteley and Peter Sandøe (eds.).

Get the e-book:


In order to pass the mandatory PhD course in responsible conduct of research, you must hand in an assignment where you describe and discuss relevant issues from the curriculum in relation to your own research work.

The assessment of your assignment will be available in Absalon approximately a month after course date. Please check Absalon for your result. A check mark means passed, and an X means you must re-write your assignment. Feedback and further instructions from the assessor will be given to you in Absalon in this situation. It Is your own responsibility to check in Absalon.

For each attempt, you will receive a new deadline 2 weeks later for resubmission of your assignment. Overdue submission(s) will count as an attempt. If the assignment is not passed after three attempts, you must participate in the RCR course again.

Following counts as attempts 1) if you miss submission date or must rewrite assignment (each rewrite counts as 1 attempt), 2) if you miss submission date on rewrite assignment, and 3) if you submit after 3 months of course date. After 6 months of course date you fail the course.
