UiO maintains a strong focus on research ethics, and has prepared a special plan of action for preventing academic dishonesty.
The university is responsible for ensuring that research proceeds in compliance with the regulatory framework laid down in the Act relating to universities and colleges, the Public Administration Act, and the conditions stipulated by external funding sources. Deans and the heads of institutes shall maintain constant vigilance to ensure that the regulations are complied with.
The individual researcher has an independent responsibility to ensure that their research proceeds in accordance with good research practice and recognised scientific and ethical principles, and in compliance with the regulatory framework.
Good research practice
UiO has prepared a Handbook of good research practice. The handbook is intended as a reference work to enable researchers to find applicable rules and routines easily.
The information in this handbook must be supplemented with local research-related routines.
