FH 2.20.7 Policy on Research Misconduct and Fraud
Fortunately, research misconduct and fraud are rare events. However, because of the seriousness of misconduct and the special responsibilities of universities in such circumstances and in accordance with federal regulations, the university has developed a set of explicit policies and procedures for dealing with allegations of research misconduct and fraud. These are outlined in the “Administrative Policy and Procedures for Review, Investigation and Reporting Allegations of Research Misconduct and Fraud.” This document is an appendix of the Research Handbook. Copies of this document are available from the Office of the Vice President for Research.
