Research Oversight

Universitywide Commitment to Compliance

ORTM works with partners across campus to support researchers in compliance. The CWRU Export Control Program can help researchers understand and navigate laws that govern the transmissions of certain information, technologies, materials and equipment. University Health and Counseling Services (UHCS) and the Environmental Health and Safety Office (EHS) each work to support research and the health and safety of the CWRU community. The CWRU Research Data Management site offers resources with guidelines on best practices, data storage options, funding guidelines, and training and support opportunities.

Research Integrity

CWRU is committed to the integrity of all research conducted under its purview. All observed, suspected or apparent research misconduct should be reported to the research integrity officer.

If anyone associated with CWRU has a concern about the integrity of research, there are resources to provide information to the appropriate officials so that the situation can be reviewed.
