ALL AT UCSD
UCSD’s Integrity of Research policy has undergone a thorough review and revision process. Effective immediately the revised policy, dated March 1, 2006, supersedes the previous version dated November 25, 1995.
The UCSD Integrity of Research Policy and Procedures for Responding to Allegations of Research Misconduct is based on the principle that quality research requires adherence to the highest standards of integrity in proposing, conducting, and reporting research.
Research Misconduct is defined as Fabrication, Falsification, or Plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results. Any individual affiliated with UCSD has an ethical responsibility to report their concerns if he or she suspects Research Misconduct may have occurred.
The Policy applies to all persons engaged in the design, conduct, or reporting of research at or for UCSD, including faculty, other academic appointees, postdoctoral scholars, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students.
