Integrity in academic research: comments requested
A draft policy addressing integrity in academic research is available for comment on the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research) web page at www.queensu.ca/research/vpr/policies.php or The Office of Research Services webpage, www.queensu.ca/vpr/policies/policies.html
A copy is also available in the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research), F407 Mackintosh-Corry Hall.
This policy has been drafted by the Research Integrity Sub-Committee of the Queen's University Advisory Research Committee, at the request of the Advisory Research Committee.
The draft policy will be submitted to the Senate for approval following this consultation period and further revision. If approved by the Senate, the policy will replace the Queen's University Code of Research Ethics (1987).
The Senate Policy on Integrity in Academic Research as drafted generally applies to all members of the Queen's community participating in research or scholarly activities at or under the aegis of Queen's. However, the policy does not apply to a student involved in an integrity issue relating to academic research and associated with a course in which they are enrolled. The draft Senate Policy concerning academic integrity addresses integrity issues related to students and associated with course work.
The Office of the Vice-Principal (Research) encourages wide-distribution of this policy for review and comment. Please submit comments by Sept. 30, 2008 to:
Research Integrity Sub-Committee of the Queen's University Advisory Research Committee c/o Susan Marlin, Chair – Research Integrity Sub-Committee, Associate Vice-Principal (Research) Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room F407 Queen's University, Kingston Ontario K7L 3N6
