On 8 March 2023, the Ombudswoman Dr Loreta Tauginienė met with the doctoral supervisors in the fields of sociology, pedagogy, and philology. During the training of doctoral supervisors, the legal regulation of scientific activities in Europe and Lithuania was presented, and the amendments in the legal regulation of doctoral studies and their impact on the scientific supervision were discussed. Doctoral supervisors discussed the dilemmas that arise on a regular basis, such as whether research works co-authored by doctoral students and their supervisors should be published, and what actions are considered to be scientific supervision and research conduct. Doctoral supervisors also explored the violations of unethical authorship and measures to promote compliance with academic ethics.
