Research ethics

Research misconduct

The Board for investigation of misconduct in research at Uppsala University is responsible for investigating suspected research misconduct. The Board consists of a legally qualified member with judicial experience, teacher and student representatives, a legal officer and the University Director.

Misconduct in research includes the following:

  • Falsification
  • Misrepresentation
  • Plagiarism
  • Failure to apply for permits or adhere to agreed terms.

The Board also has the task of combating misconduct in research by means of information and by other means. However, the Board does not have the task of evaluating the quality of research.

This is how Uppsala University handles reports of research misconduct
