Faculty members at UWF are expected to maintain high ethical standards in the conduct and reporting of scientific and scholarly research. The faculty and other research staff have responsibilities for ethical conduct in research not only to the university, but also to the community at large, the academic community, and those private and public institutions to which members of the faculty are bound by affiliation or contract. This responsibility extends to the students or employees directly under the faculty members' supervision. See the following for additional information:
Should alleged incidents of misconduct in research occur, reporting of such possible violations is a widely shared responsibility, and it is the duty of the faculty and administration to respond in a fitting manner to resolve issues arising from such alleged misconduct.
