Guideline for ensuring the good science practice

Paracelsus University implemented in 2009 a university-wide Guideline for ensuring the good science practice. The guideline serves as a guide for diligent scientific research work and also regulates the handling of the possible violations against the good science practice.

In 2012, PMU became a member of the Austrian Agency for Scientific Integrity (ÖAWI) as the first Austrian private university. The ÖAWI Guideline for ensuring the good science practice was approved by PMU and was adopted in addition to its own guideline.   

Two ombudspersons for good science practice are available for all questions regarding the good science practice. The ombudspersons can be contacted in discretion; they are released from any reporting obligation when made aware of any violation against the good science practice:
