UCSB Misconduct Policy

The UCSB Research Misconduct Policy has been revised to comply with the latest federal sponsor requirements and to reflect UCSB’s ongoing commitment to the highest standards of intellectual honesty and integrity. The revised policy outlines expectations for the ethical behavior of all university personnel involved in research and provides procedures for addressing allegations of research misconduct. The revised policy can be found on the Research Misconduct page of the Office of Research website.
