Why are manners important in sociology

Manners in Science

Many academic rules of conduct are nowhere laid down, but are only passed on from one generation of universities to the next in daily dealings.

Because the flow of information in matters of manners and behavior is so important, especially for young academics, members of the Junge Akademie now want to compile a list of "a hundred manners in science". On this occasion, Campus & Karriere explores the question of what you need to know and pay attention to in order to make progress in university operations, and which faux pas a scientific career has in store.
