Research Misconduct in the News

  • 'My Adviser Stole My Research'
    article in Chronicle of Higher Ed (Nov 11, 2012). Connect through VPN if off campus.
    "Internationally established researchers offer independent reviews about the academic conduct (not the content) either ad-hoc or following an invitation from their peers. Independent academics as well as the general public use the Integru platform to submit new cases, recommend experts in the field, invite experts for review, coordinate the review process etc. towards resolving an alleged misconduct case."

What is the Responsible Conduct of Research?


What is Research Misconduct?

From the U.S. Dept. of HHS Office of Research Integrity:

Research misconduct means fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results.

(a) Fabrication is making up data or results and recording or reporting them.

(b) Falsification is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting data or results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record.

(c) Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit.

(d) Research misconduct does not include honest error or differences of opinion.
