eLearning course "Good Academic Practice during Doctoral Studies"

How should research results be documented? What is the right way to cite? How does one handle image sources? Answers to questions about working correctly are provided in the eLearning course "Good Academic Practice During Doctoral Studies" in German and English.

Via Saarland University's GradUS programme and thanks to the support of Goethe University Frankfurt, doctoral researchers are offered the chance to complete this eLearning course and to receive a certificate after successful completion. GRADE, the (post)graduate academy of Goethe University Frankfurt, has designed this course to be interdisciplinary and has provided a review of additional topics regarding doctoral work: how to wisely plan and organize the research project and which legal aspects, such as in labour law or copyright law, are relevant for doctoral candidates.

Five modules are available, containing comprehensive information, tests to check the knowledge gained as well as supplementary information materials. Completing all modules takes about 60 minutes. You can interrupt the course at any time, recover your previous progress or repeat modules.

At the end, you will have the possibility to receive a certificate that also contains the logo of Saarland University.
