Scientific Integrity requires continuous attention by anyone involved in science. The ‘rules of the game’ are described by the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity, and are further specified by our recently published Amsterdam UMC Research Code.

The Amsterdam UMC Research Code defines local guidelines and expectations that researchers and staff are expected to follow when conducting research at Amsterdam UMC. Despite efforts to promote responsible conduct of research, situations can arise where research integrity seems to have been compromised. Together with the associated universities, Amsterdam UMC operates joint policies for the handling of alleged breaches of integrity.

Complaints procedures outline the various steps to be taken in the event of an alleged breach, the officers who play a role in this procedure and what you can expect once a complaint has been submitted.

More information about the Amsterdam UMC Research Code can be found on the Amsterdam UMC Research Support website.
