What You Need to Know
Review the following policies in full in the Handbook on Student Rights and Responsibilities:
Regulation on the Conduct of Research
This regulation establishes a general framework for the conduct of research. It is premised on individual responsibility for the selection and conduct of research and scholarship as individual members of the University community are best positioned, through special knowledge, to be aware of both the manner in which their Research and scholarly activity is being conducted and the consequences of such activity.
Policy on Ethical Conduct of Research Involving Human Subjects
The Policy on Research Ethics applies to all individuals who conduct research at McGill University or at one of its affiliated institutions.
Regulations Concerning Investigation of Research Misconduct
These Regulations, which apply to all allegations of research misconduct, regardless of the discipline involved, establish a procedural framework that will ensure prompt and appropriate response whenever an allegation of research misconduct is made.
Who You Can Talk To
- Ask questions about team work and citation style from your instructor or TA.
- To understand a disciplinary officer's allegation of an academic offence, speak to the Office of the Dean of Students or a student advisor from the Legal Information Clinic.
- If your problem still hasn't been resolved, you can contact the Office of the Ombudsperson.
