Research Misconduct Process

Administrative Regulation 7:1 Research Misconduct [HTML]


Reporting to Federal ORI

UK is committed to prompt and thorough review of good faith concerns of wrongful conduct brought forward.  Where warranted based on the conclusions of a review, UK takes appropriate actions to correct errors, eliminate deficient practices, and/or make improvements.

UK recognizes the importance of balancing the need to arrive at the truth with respectful consideration of the confidentiality and/or anonymity of the parties involved.  Every attempt is made by the reviewers to be attentive to those considerations in the course of an ethics review.  Therefore, if you are asked to participate in a review, you should be open and truthful in answering any questions, cooperate fully, and respect the privacy of the matter by not discussing it with others, unless as directed by the reviewer.  Any questions you may have as a participant in a review may be directed to the Research Integrity Officer (RIO).
