Policy on Research Conduct and Integrity


Maintenance of high academic integrity is essential to every aspect of the academic purpose: Quality research and education, mutual trust among colleagues, building nurturing relationships with our students, etc.  Academic integrity cannot be maintained without a system that facilitates the uncovering of violations when they occur and deals with each occurrence APPROPRIATELY.

The Policy on Research Conduct and Integrity is part of a larger process and is in line with the intrinsic core values and principles of HKUST's academic enterprise laid out in "A Framework on Academic Integrity (1995, HKUST Senate)" (which is now renamed as "Procedural Framework Governing Violations of Academic Integrity") and ensures that those accused of violations of academic integrity are treated fairly and by due process.
