As an institution committed to the creation of new knowledge through research, the University seeks to ensure integrity in the design, conduct and reporting of research results. Federal regulations define “research misconduct” as fabrication, falsification or plagiarism in the design, conduct or reporting of research. All members of the JHU community have an obligation to report in good faith suspected research misconduct.
