Policy Update: Integrity in Research and Scholarship
I’d like to share information with you about the University of Tennessee’s new policy and procedures on responsible conduct in research and scholarly activities, which take effect Sept. 15.
Every member of the University community has the responsibility of ensuring that research and scholarly activities are conducted with integrity. Furthermore, all faculty, staff and students have the responsibility of complying with federal regulations that include specific rules for reporting and reviewing any allegations of misconduct in connection with University work. Examples of misconduct include falsification, fabrication and plagiarism.
