Handling and Resolving Allegations of Research Misconduct

Please refer to the University's Research Misconduct Policy.

 


Making an Allegation of Research Misconduct

Anyone considering making, or wishing to make, an allegation of research misconduct should inform their supervisor or manager (or that person’s line manager, should a conflict of interest be apparent), and/or a Research Integrity Advisor. If the matter involves ethics or biosafety, the Chair of the relevant human ethics, animal ethics or biosafety committee may also be an appropriate initial point of contact.
