January 3, 2013
As of January 2013, the Tri-Agencies (NSERC CIHR and SSHRC) have renewed their agreement with research institutions.
The new agreement is available: here
This new agreement incorporates the new framework of rules and policies for the responsible conduct of research, including the requirement for researchers and applicants, as part of the regular grant application process, to consent to the public disclosure of personal information in the event of a serious breach of agency policy e.g. Deliberate misuse of research funds for personal benefit not related to research or scholarly misconduct.
In order to comply with the new agreement, the following University of Victoria policies have been updated:
Policy on Scholarly Integrity (Researchers not subject to the Framework Agreement)
Policy on Scholarly Integrity (Pursuant to the Framework Agreement)
Research Involving Humans
You are strongly advised to review the new tri-agency agreement and UVic policies noted above.
