Statement from K. Lenhard Rudolph
"An investigation into good scientific practice has concluded that there is gross negligence in some publications which were under my supervision. I take this criticism very seriously and will rigorously address these cases and make appropriate corrections. I will therefore step down from the position of Active President of the GSCN in order to avoid any negative consequences for the GSCN and to fulfill my responsibility as a scientist."
This process has the following consequence:
In accordance with the Articles of Association (§ 8) the 1st deputy chairman of the Executive Board of the GSCN and Senior President, Ulrich Martin, will assume the duties of chairman and Active President until the next general meeting.
The GSCN Annual Conference 2017 will take place in Jena as planned from 11 to 13 September.
