Responsible Conduct of Research

Main Content

All researchers have the ethical and moral obligation to conduct their University-sanctioned research responsibly and to train their staff and students in the responsible conduct of research. Many issues related to research integrity are covered by government or university policies, but some are too complex to be governed by policy documents. Adherence to responsible research practices must be part of the legacy that each mentor passes on to his or her students as part of the research training process.

University policies and compliances governing research and sponsored projects may be found on our Policies page. Federal regulations governing sponsored research are found on our Resources page.
