The Scholarly Integrity Initiative

We are all responsible for fostering a research culture that supports each other to do our best work. This includes acting with honesty, accountability, openness and fairness in the search for and dissemination of knowledge.

The Scholarly Integrity Initiative supports UBC researchers and scholars in all aspects of conducting research responsibly. This includes information and resources about:

  • Best practices and key challenges related to the responsible conduct of research,
  • Frameworks for navigating ethical issues and challenges inherent to all stages of research, and
  • The responsibilities of the university regarding scholarly integrity.

The initiative is inspired by the commitment to research excellence at UBC, as outlined in the university's strategic plan: Shaping UBC's Next Century and is informed by the Scholarly Integrity Policy and the Tri-Agency Framework on the responsible conduct of research.

We hope the material found on this site will start conversations about conducting research with integrity, as we each contribute to a strong and diverse research culture at UBC.
