Responsible Conduct of Research

Office of Research Affairs and Knowledge Transfer Responsible Conduct of Research

The University promotes Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), which covers (but not limited) accuracy, honesty, efficiency, integrity, objectivity, professionalism and safety in research. For example, research involving human subjects must follow relevant guidelines and ethical clearance should be obtained as required.

All research conducted by members of the University must be conducted in a responsible manner, and researchers are expected to be responsible for how they prepare, conduct and report their research studies.

The University does not tolerate research misconduct. It takes seriously any misconduct, such as plagiarism, abuse of data, improper ascription of authorship, and non-disclosure of conflict of interest. It will investigate alleged violations of research misconduct.
