Research Integrity

In accordance with the government policy on ensuring research integrity decided in April 2021, Kyushu University has established a system to ensure research integrity.

Read more about Kyushu University’s commitment to ensure research integrity, and the policies and regulations that are being drafted for achieving them below. 

■What is Research Integrity?

“Research Integrity” means the trustworthiness and fairness of research.

In order to ensure the Research Integrity, it is important to conduct what has been addressed by each member more properly and accurately, such as prevention of research misconduct and conflict of interest, and compliance with related rules including security export control. With the rapid internationalization and openness of research in recent years, the Research Integrity is becoming more important for all of the research activities at the university to be recognized as internationally credible research activities with ensuring transparency and fulfilling accountability.
