Members of the research community may report a compliance concern regarding research in two ways:
- Regular calls: Call the Director of Research Affairs - Research Integrity at 909-558-8166 or extension 88166. You can also send an email to: ResearchIntegrity@llu.edu.
- Anonymous calls
What should be reported:
- Allegations of Research Misconduct, including fabrication, falsification, and plagiarism of research data and materials
- Human and Animal Research Subject Complaints
- Other violations (consult Research Integrity)
These all constitute violations of research-related policies and procedures. The institution has put these policies into place as part of a larger, corporate compliance plan to protect the institution and its employees. A copy of the corporate compliance plan can be accessed via the Intranet VIP Page.
Compliance is EVERYONE’s responsibility. Therefore all employees, contractors, and/or agents have an obligation to report any actions they believe are violations of research policies and procedures. This requirement ensures that all employees, contractors, and/or agents are watching for issues that could potentially pose risk to the institution.
