Veranstaltung: Questionable Research Practices, 27.11.2023, 14:15-15:45, Berlin/Online

Dear colleagues, dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

 We would like to invite you to a talk and discussion on the topic of Questionable Research Practice: What are they and so should we worry. The lecture will take place in a hybrid format on Monday, November 27.11., 14.15-15.45 (CET).

Prof. Jesper W. Schneider (Aarhus University, Denmark) will introduce and discuss the concepts of questionable research practices and misconduct. We will discuss their alleged widespread use, the suggested reasons for this, and the presumed effects they have on the scientific system, not least their role in the so-called replication crisis. Examples will be given, and we will conclude with a discussion of proposed remedies to the challenges. The talk is based on the preprint “Is something rotten in the state of Denmark? Cross-national evidence for widespread involvement but not systematic use of questionable research practices across all fields of research.” (

Jesper W. Schneider will speak at the BUA-seminar ‘So geht Wissenschaft – Aktuelle Diskussionen zu Open Science und Forschungsqualität’, hosted by Professor Martin Reinhart (Humboldt-Universität Berlin/Robert Merton Center for Science Studies).
