Research Integrity Program

The University of Texas at Austin is committed to promoting an environment that fosters research integrity. The foundation of our research enterprise must be based on shared values for conducting the highest quality research, including honesty, accuracy, objectivity, fairness, and stewardship. Without trust that research is conducted according to these core values of science, the research and resulting knowledge are not reliable.

UT’s research integrity program is comprised of two components: Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) and Research Misconduct. The RCR program provides education and resources to promote ethical behavior in the design, conduct and reporting of research. The Research Misconduct program is in place to investigate instances were research integrity is in question.
