Main content

This panel debate organised by the University Library takes on ethical and practical issues related to research publications.

The following question will be addressed:

- How does quality control in science work?
- How and why avoid plagiarism?
- Why is the retraction rate so high for scientific publications?
- Why open access becomes more and more important?
- How to evaluate the quality of open access journals?
- What is citation impact and why is it so important for researchers?
- Does it reflect the scientific merits of a given paper?
- And what can you do to improve your impact?

After a short introduction into the topics there will be time for question and debate.
