The Hebrew University aspires to excellence in research. Excellence is not measured merely by results; it depends in large part on appropriate conduct in research. Appropriate conduct in research is founded on a commitment to the principles of truth, freedom, responsibility, integrity, and cooperation, as well as compliance with internationally accepted professional and ethical standards, state laws, university rules, and conditions and regulations of funding bodies.
The Hebrew University requires that its research workers, visiting faculty included, adhere to the principles and rules laid out in its Code of Conduct in Research in all aspects of their research, including: the planning and submitting of research proposals for funding; generating, documenting, analyzing and preserving date; appropriating, publishing, sharing and commercializing results.
Research misconduct is a disciplinary offence governed by the University Disciplinary Code.
