Network of Research Integrity Points of Contact (NORIPOC)

Network of Research Integrity Points of Contact: Terms of Reference

  • To provide a forum for NTU research integrity points of contact to exchange information, experiences and views;

Duties and Responsibilities of the Research Integrity Point of Contact

  1. To act as the formal conduit for information on the University’s research integrity policy and its implementation between the College/School/Autonomous Institute/Research Institute or other appropriate unit and the President’s Office acting through the Vice President (Research) and the Research Integrity Officer. The RIPOC will ensure that Deans, Chairs and Directors, as appropriate, are kept fully aware of NTU policy development in research integrity;
  2. To provide the focal point within the College/School/Autonomous Institute/Research Institute or other appropriate unit for advice, information and mentoring/education and, in so doing, to be familiar with the details of educational programmes developed by the University in the area of academic and research integrity;
  3. To liaise with the Research Integrity Officer with regard to any allegations of breaches of the research integrity received by the RIPOC and assist in any further investigations, as appropriate;
  4. In particular, the RIPOC is expected to be familiar with the contents of the on-line Epigeum Research Integrity programme, based on the edVenture platform provided by CELT, and to develop mentoring and tutorial sessions to supplement in the online programme in a blended learning environment. The RIPOC will be expected to liaise with the Research Integrity Officer to develop “road-shows” in research integrity for faculty, research staff and graduate students;
  5. The RIPOC will receive all notifications from OHR, and local HR units as appropriate, and from GSO with regard to those faculty, research staff and graduate students who, following reminders, have failed to sign the Research Integrity Declaration and to follow up with the individuals concerned to ensure compliance;
  6. The RIPOC will ensure that all persons involved in developing external research collaborations, whether in Singapore or abroad, are aware of the NTU research integrity policy and include a standard clause on research integrity in all agreements;
  7. The RIPOC is expected to contribute pro-actively to the development of the NTU Research Integrity policy through participation in the Network of Research Integrity Points of Contact (NORIPOC) chaired by Vice-President (Research).
