Research Integrity (Staff and Students)
Responsible conduct in research involves different needs and guidelines, depending on the kind of research that is being undertaken.
Research methods and other discipline-specific aspects of the research framework are dealt with by the schools or research groups, but there are other requirements that cover broader classes of research. These for the most part are dealt with by the Office of Research Integrity (ORI).
