The University is committed to the highest standards of academic integrity and expects its students to maintain these standards in their research.  

The University's policy on Conflicts of Interest, Data Management, Health and Safety, Human Subjects Research, Intellectual Property, Mentoring, Peer Review, Publications and Authorship, Research involving Animals, Research Misconduct and Training are given on its Research integrity and ethics webpages.

The University's Academic Integrity in Research: Code of Practice and Procedure describes the procedure for dealing with misconduct due to fabrication, falsification, plagiarism, or deception in proposing, carrying out, or reporting results of research, and deliberate, dangerous or negligent deviations from accepted practice in carrying out research.

Graduate students should be familiar with University's policy on Academic good practice, and new students are required to complete the relevant online WebLearn courses. Members of the University have a responsibility to report incidents of misconduct. Allegations will be investigated in strictest confidence.  

Academic misconduct is unethical; it devalues your research, the work of your colleagues and your institution.
