Responsible Conduct of Research

At HSN and HSNRI we are committed to ensuring that researchers ‘strive to follow the best research practices honestly, accountably, openly and fairly in the search for and in the dissemination of knowledge’.  This includes:

Honesty in all aspects of research

Accountability in the conduct of research

Professional courtesy and fairness in working with others

Good stewardship of research on behalf of others

All research is expected to be conducted in compliance with applicable laws, regulations, institutional policies and professional or disciplinary standards. For more information please see:

HSNRI has also created policies on Research Integrity and Research Misconduct Investigations that are available for review.
