Misconduct in Research/Responsible Conduct in Research


The Office of Research Integrity of the US Department of Health and Human Services and most federal sponsors require universities to have a policy on the responsible conduct of research and responding to allegations of misconduct. As of November 2015 the Office of the Chancellor is developing a system wide Procedure/Standard to provide all universities with the basic requirements. Indiana University has a university policy that was submitted and approved by the Office of Research Integrity. It is available at the following link:    Research_Misconduct_Policy_Statement_3-28-11.pdf 
The following web site is supported by the NSF as on-line resource in ethics education: The Online Ethics Center.  Shippensburg University has developed a Research Training and Oversight Program, which is available as a model for all PASSHE Universities.
