Research misconduct is defined by the federal government as fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results.
• Fabrication is making up data or results and recording or reporting them.
• Falsification is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting data or results such that the research method or result is not accurately represented in the research record.
• Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person’s ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit. Plagiarism does not encompass disagreements over order of authorship, rights to publish, or the use of ideas among collaborators.
Honest error or differences of opinion are not considered research misconduct.
Allegations involving possible misconduct in research should be brought to the attention of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development (401-874-4576) or Ted Myatt, Director of Research Integrity, 401-874-2636, firstname.lastname@example.org as promptly as possible.
