Open Access, Research Integrity, Data Management and Acknowledgement

Open Access

Fellows must ensure Open Access (OA) to all peer-reviewed scientific publications relating to their results either by OA publishing or by utilizing Green OA repositories such as DTU Orbit.

Successful applicants are expected to disseminate their results at different levels as widely as possible. In addition to OA publishing this could be conferences (peer-topeer), publics engagements or social and printed media.

DTU Library gives advice about Open Access and can be contacted at

Research Integrity

Fellows must comply with principles for good scientific conduct (see DTU’s Code of Conduct for Research Integrity).

Applicants must include a table of ethics issues (Annex 4) in their application to be eligible. In addition, applicants should also address this issue in the research plan.

Find information about ethical research.

Data Management

Applicants can include a Data Management Plan.

Fellows must comply with the Danish Code of Conduct for Research Integrity.

Fellows must ensure, where appropriate, that primary materials and research data are available and support Open Science, except if this is in conflict with legal, contractual, or current regulations on for example ethical, confidentiality or privacy matters or intellectual property rights.

Good management of research data is defined in the DTUs Research Data Management Policy and the DTU Code of Conduct for Research Integrity.
