3.5 Maintenance of Ethical Standards When Conducting Teaching, Research and Service Activities

 

The principles that govern scientific research and other scholarly activities have long been established and have been applied by faculties and administrators for the discovery of new knowledge. The Policy Concerning the Responsible Conduct of Research and Other Scholarly Activities has been developed at UAB to emphasize UAB's commitment to ethical standards and to deal effectively and responsibly with instances in which misconduct is suspected.

The University is a participant with the UA System Ethics Hotline and all employees are expected to practice ethical behaviors in teaching, service and research.

It is the responsibility of each UAB employee to accurately document information related to work practices. All faculty members must be aware of and comply with the Policy Concerning Employee Falsification of UAB Records and Documents.
