Definition of Research Misconduct
Research misconduct is defined as plagiarism; fabrication or intentional falsification of data, research procedures or data analysis; or other deliberate misrepresentation in proposing, conducting, reporting or reviewing research. It does not include honest error or honest differences in interpretations or judgments of data.
In cases of allegations involving activities submitted to or supported by a federal agency, the definition for research misconduct specified in the agency's regulations will apply.
