Research Integrity and Other Requirements
The University of Wisconsin–Madison is committed to helping researchers conduct ethical research. Researchers often must address other research obligations in addition to oversight related activities. These include:
Responsible Conduct of Research
The University of Wisconsin–Madison strives to foster the highest scholarly and ethical standards among its students, faculty, and staff. Several federal requirements ensure those conducting research are trained in responsible conduct of research.
Research misconduct is defined as fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results.

Each UW–Madison employee and student has the obligation to determine how export controls might apply to their activities, and to work cooperatively with the University export control management structure to ensure export control compliance.
Research Vehicle Safety Oversight (Drones)
The UW–Madison Research Vehicle Safety Oversight policy helps researchers and instructors on campus meet the FAA rules for flying unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), while also helping to protect privacy.
Public Access to Publications
Most federal agencies now require researchers to make final, peer-reviewed manuscripts publicly accessible as a condition of funding. Failure to meet these requirements could affect researchers’ awards now and in the future.
