Ombuds Office of the University of Vienna for Ensuring Compliance with Good Scientific Practice

The Ombuds Office of the University of Vienna considers itself the first contact point for researchers wishing to lodge a complaint about scientific misconduct. The coordination of the Ombuds Office is in the hands of the Unit for Quality Assurance. We kindly ask to provide before a first meeting all relevant materials (e.q. publications) in written form to Claudia Stermsek, BA.

The University of Vienna is a member of the Austrian Agency for Scientific Integrity (OeAWI). You are of course free to contact the Agency directly.

Allegations of plagiarism in diploma or doctoral theses should be presented directly to the administrative body responsible for study matters (Studienpräses).
