Seminar 25/2: Research Ethics Challenges in the Supervisor-PhD Student Relationship

Main content


Redelighetsutvalget (The Standing Committee on Ethics) at the University of Bergen invites you to a morning ethics meeting 25. February.

Are PhD candidates and master students under cross pressure between the everyday realities and the ethical ideals of science? In the absence of reliable data, we are left with anecdotes of unacceptable work pressure, competitiveness and violations of ethical norms, not least with respect to co-authorship. Is there a need to improve research students' working conditions? Is there a need to clarify the line between legitimate high ambitions and unreasonable pressures? Are there measures that PhD candidates and master students as well as their supervisors would like to propose?
