NTNU’s academic leaders and researchers have a special responsibility to fulfil our obligations in reporting and financial management. Ethics and good research practice NTNU follows international guidelines for good research practice and ethical practice as described by The Norwegian National Research Ethics Committees in the form of: general guidelines for research ethics and guidelines specific to subject areas for: medicine and health science and technology (pdf) the social sciences, law and the humanities (pdf)internet research NTNU has additional guidelines for research involving humans. See NTNU’s regulations on the handling of personal data in research and student projects NTNU follows the code of ethics from the International Council of Museums in the management of natural and cultural heritage in our collections and exhibitions. Academic communities and supervision NTNU’s researchers are encouraged to develop a collegial community for review of methods and results, as well as further development of their own academic skills. Academic supervision of younger researchers should take place generously and without exaggerated protection for the supervisor’s own professional interests, but with respect for the ownership of ideas and results. See Section 6.1 below on NTNU’s code of ethics for teaching and supervisory relationships See the NTNU PhD Handbook (pdf) on the supervisor’s role in PhD programmes. Publishing NTNU’s researchers are encouraged to communicate their results to their peers and the public. NTNU follows the rules for academic publishing and co-authorship in the respective academic fields. Colleagues and sources of knowledge of significance for research findings must be acknowledged appropriately. To clarify any conflicts of interest, funding sources, as well as ownership of results if relevant, should always be stated. Candidates in NTNU’s organized research training are expected to specify NTNU as the author’s address in their publications. See NTNU Publishing Policy See Innsida on ‘publishing’ See The Norwegian National Research Ethics Committees’ guidelines on co-authorship (in Norwegian) See UHR’s recommended guidelines for crediting academic publications to institutions Accept academic dissent, but not dishonesty in research NTNU’s researchers are to have broad academic freedom. This includes the right to choose research topics, methods, and forms of communication for the research results. At the same time, academic freedom entails a responsibility to contribute to a research culture in which there is room for academic disagreement, where researchers show personal respect for colleagues and loyally follow management decisions
