Research misconduct policy approved by Board of Regents

UNM faculty and administration have created a new process to deal with research misconduct if it arises and to ensure the credibility and objectivity of research activities.

A new UNM Research Misconduct Policy was approved by the Faculty Senate in April and passed by the UNM Board of Regents in May.

The policy applies to all individuals who may be involved with a research project, including, but not limited to, faculty, graduate/undergraduate students, staff, employees, contractors, visiting scholars and any other member of the University’s academic community. The policy and procedures regarding research misconduct are intended to protect the integrity of the University’s research enterprise and not hinder the search for truth or interfere with the expansion of knowledge.

Federal regulations require educational institutions that receive research funding from federal agencies to have in place a process to resolve allegations of research misconduct.

The policy is available online through the Office of Research Services at http://www.unm.edu/~ors/policy_procedure/Research_Misconduct_Policy.pdf
