The workshop aimed at deepening understanding of research misconduct and questionable research practices, including; types, causes, consequences, handling and reporting, real cases and possible preventative remedies. Further, the workshop assisted the graduate students to become familiar with the consequences of research misconduct and real examples of cases in the scientific community. In addition, proper research practices were addressed to avoid research misconduct and questionable research practices. The participants appreciated the provided information and they requested to conduct such useful workshops more frequently.
