Investigational process

Research conducted under the auspices of the University of Waterloo must comply with the Tri-Agency Framework: Responsible Conduct of Research.

Investigations into allegations of irresponsible conduct of research are handled by two separate guidelines. However, the process involved is essentially the same.

University of Waterloo policies also outline additional obligations with respect to the responsible conduct of research such as conflict of interest, intellectual property, and ethical behaviour.
