Research integrity breaches

Breaching research integrity can result in receiving an allegation letter from the University. The DUSA Student Advocacy and Support Service offer free confidential advice and support in regards to this process.

If you have received a research integrity allegation, our experienced Advocacy team are here to help.

Research Integrity Allegations include research code and serious research code breaches by students conducting research in Honours, coursework or higher degrees by research (HDR).

Further information regarding Research Integrity Allegations can be found through the Research Integrity Breaches procedure.
