The responsible conduct of research covers research behaviour in all its aspects, and commits the researcher to conduct his research with care, rigour, honesty and respect. These are the hallmarks of good scholarship and are in accordance with the Singapore Statement on Research Integrity.
There is also an obligation to report observed, suspected or apparent misconduct, malpractices and/or non-compliances with the University’s codes of conduct and discipline. This includes research that involves the use of human subjects and animals in research, including issues with husbandry care of animals.
To report a possible case of research misconduct or poor research practice, please contact Assoc Prof Roderick Bates, the NTU Research Integrity Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org. All reports will be handled with strict confidentiality.
To make an anonymous report, please
submit the form. Please note that anonymous allegations made with insufficient supporting information will not be investigated. Thus, all complainants are requested to substantiate your allegations with a thorough description of the nature of allegation, along with necessary supporting information.
Issues not related to research (e.g. HR or Finance matters) should be directed to NTU's Ethics and Compliance Committee (ECC) via this online form. NTU practices a Whistleblower protection policy.
