Scholarly Misconduct

The policy defines scholarly misconduct as including: plagiarism; fabrication or falsification of research data; conflict of scholarly interest, including suppressing the publication of the work of another scholar and improper negative reviewing of a research grant application by another scholar; and other practices that deviate significantly from those which are commonly accepted as appropriate within the scholarly communities.

As well, each faculty has definitions and guidelines which are applicable to those disciplines and activities which characterize scholarly work within the faculty. In particular, the faculty guidelines deal with the retention of original data and material products relating to scholarly activity and the authorship of published or presented work.
