Misconduct in Research

As a community of scholars in which truthfulness and integrity are fundamental, the University must establish procedures for the investigation of allegations of misconduct of research with due care to protect the rights of those making the allegations, those accused, and the University. Furthermore, federal regulations require the University to have explicit procedures for addressing incidences in which there are allegations of misconduct in research. Therefore, in congruence with the University of North Carolina Policy on Research Misconduct, adopted August 11, 2006, Winston-Salem State University has created its specific policy on how the institution will respond to allegations relative to research misconduct.
