University Approves New Responsible Conduct of Research Policy


The University of Guelph expects the highest standards of integrity in every aspect of research carried out by all members of its academic community.

A new Responsible Conduct of Research Policy was passed by the University of Guelph Senate in December 2014 and approved by the University’s Board of Governors in January 2015.

It provides guidance as to the expectations regarding research integrity and to those behaviours that may form the basis of action regarding research misconduct.

The new research policy is available for viewing on the Office of Research web page.
