Conducting and reporting research ethically is fundamental to academic research. Researcher behavior must inspire trust with the public and within the scientific community and among colleagues. The University of Wisconsin-Madison strives to foster the highest scholarly and ethical standards among its students, faculty, and staff. The University has policies for reporting and dealing with research misconduct and several ways for you to learn more about research ethics.
The Graduate School’s Integrating Research Ethics and Scholarship (IRES) program helps those engaged in research to build skills in ethical decision making. Seminars are offered throughout the year in key areas related to research ethics.
Several federal requirements ensure those conducting research are trained in responsible conduct of research. The National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) require research ethics training.
