Scientific integrity

Amsterdam Law School

Connection with society

In education and research, the Amsterdam Law School seeks to connect with society. Many employees are connected to the practice of law. For research, external funding or collaboration with social partners can create space, time and new substantive opportunities. At the same time, these connections bring risks to integrity of research and teaching.

The Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity 

In view of these risks, the Amsterdam Law School has committed itself to the standards of good scientific practice. These standards are set forth in The Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity. In short, research and teaching must meet the requirements of honesty, diligence, transparency, independence and responsibility.

The faculty has a duty of care to ensure application of the code. It must provide "a work environment [...] in which good research practices are promoted and safeguarded," and in which "researchers feel responsible and accountable, can share dilemmas and discuss mistakes made without fear of the consequences."

Ethics and Scientific Integrity Committee

The Amsterdam Law School has its own Ethics and Scientific Integrity Committee. It consists of a minimum of five members and reflects the diversity of research areas of the faculty. The Committee reviews in advance research involving human participants or personal data.

Members of the committee are:
