UH Policies and Procedures

These policies and procedures apply to all faculty, researchers, and staff members, including, without limitation, undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, postdoctoral research associates, visiting faculty or staff, faculty or staff on sabbatical leave, and adjunct faculty when performing University work, and faculty or staff on leave without pay. This also includes persons, who at the time of the alleged research misconduct, were employed by, were agents of, or were affiliated by contact or agreement with the University. 

Federal Policies and Regulations

Each federal awarding agency or department has its own policies for preventing and handling research misconduct to which universities that receive funding from that federal source must comply. Become familiar with the research misconduct policies of a funding source before you apply.
