Research Misconduct

Reporting Allegations of Research Misconduct

Quality research requires adherence to the highest standards of integrity in proposing, conducting and reporting research.  Report suspected Research Misconduct (Fabrication/Falsification of data and/or Plagiarism) to the acting UCSF Research Integrity Officer: Brian Smith, Associate Vice Chancellor, interim Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer ([email protected]) or (415) 514-2080.

Individuals should not undertake investigations of suspected Research Misconduct on their own; the Office of Ethics and Compliance is responsible for evaluating and investigating all allegations of misconduct related to research at UCSF.
