NIU strives for the highest level of research integrity. If research misconduct is suspected it is important to report the event to the Research Integrity Officer. The contact information is available on this website.

Any non-compliance of the Research Misconduct Policy should be reported. Proper reporting and compliance with all regulations are essential for NIU to foster excellence in research. The ORCIS may make changes in order to reach these goals. If you have any questions please contact Shannon Stoker. Please check back for updates.
