For investigations of allegations of questionable research practice and preliminary investigations of allegations of research misconduct, the Rector has appointed one practice committee for Aalborg University (termed the AAU Practice Committee).
The AAU Practice Committee has been appointed to contribute to ensuring that allegations of questionable research practice are dealt with and to ensure a coordinated dialogue with the Danish Committee on Research Misconduct.
The primary task of the AAU Practice Committee is to investigate allegations of questionable research practice. These are defined as allegations related to scientific products (scientific articles, PhD theses, etc.) written on the basis of research conducted at Aalborg University which are outside the scope of the Danish Committee on Research Misconduct or have been dismissed by the Danish Committee on Research Misconduct.
Furthermore, the AAU Practice Committee must forward any allegations of fabrication, falsification or plagiarism which are within the scope of the Danish Committee on Research Misconduct for further investigation.
