Preventive actions for scientific misconduct and questionable research practice must be taken at an institutional level but also by scientists themselves as part of their role of science managers. We have proposed the concept of “Ethical and Efficient Research Management” and a panoply of easy to use tools which are designed to favour ethical behaviour, sound data and robust methods. Through the example of the processes “Arrival” and “Departure of a co-worker”, we show here that flow charts can help visualize critical steps in an activity and how to manage these steps in an ethical and efficient way.
Key words: Ethical and Efficient Research Management / quality management / questionable research practice
