Vorabprüfung auf Plagiate für Dissertationen nach Promotionsordnung 2017

As of January 1, 2021, all doctoral theses registered under the 2017 doctoral regulations will be subject to software-supported plagiarism assessment. This preliminary check is carried out before the dissertation is submitted to the Doctoral Office and the application for the opening of the doctoral procedure is filed. The aim is to avoid proceedings for violations of good scientific practice as far as possible in the future. Please inform yourself about the procedure on this page.

Revision of doctoral regulations 2017

The Faculty Council has partially revised the doctoral regulations 2017. You can find the new version in the Official Bulletin of the Charité (No. 258) and under Links & Downloads

In this document [in German only], we have compiled important changes that are of interest to doctoral students.
