Research Ethics

Responsible Conduct of Research

Each member of the university community has a responsibility to create and foster an environment promoting intellectual honesty and the highest standards of academic integrity. This includes attributing appropriate credit for work that is not your own, communicating responsibilities clearly to collaborators, practicing accurate and unbiased data collection, and being a good role model to other members of the research team.

Research misconduct constitutes unacceptable personal conduct with respect to scholarship and research. Disdain for misconduct in any aspect of research or scholarly endeavor must be upheld, as misconduct in any form is destructive of the standards the university attempts to instill in its students, the public perception of academia and academic disciplines, and the financial support of the government and other sponsors for scholarship and research.
