Ethical Standards in the Conduct of Research
The Research Integrity Office follows the University Administrative Manual description of Ethical Standards in the Conduct of Research:
Scholarly misconduct can neither be condoned nor tolerated at the University. Scholars and researchers bear the primary responsibility for the monitoring and rigorous evaluation of procedures and results of research and other scholarly activities under their supervision. All members of the university community adhere to the University's strict standards of integrity of academic scholarship and research and must feel ethically obligated to report (in accordance with the procedures set forth in this policy) any fraudulent acts when they are known or are suspected to have occurred.
Understand your responsibilities.
