Findings of Scholarly Misconduct at UBC

The university community recognizes the necessity for, and importance of, maintaining the highest ethical standards in the conduct of scholarly activities.

In the following cases, UBC persons were found to not uphold these standards. To demonstrate the university’s commitment to transparency and accountability, anonymized summaries of all findings of scholarly misconduct and the action taken are published annually.

Case summaries are published in the year in which the final outcome of the case was known.  For example, an investigation begun in 2018 may not have a final outcome until 2019, in which case the findings would be reported for 2019.
