Academic Integrity

Accountability and responsibility are essential for academic integrity. The RU Academic Integrity Regulations are based on the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity and the ALLEA European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity. For more information on academic integrity, please have a look on:  RU Academic-integrity regulations (in English) or Radboud-integriteitsbeleid (in Dutch).

The Dutch code of conduct for academic and scientific practice was compiled at the request of the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU). It is based on the following principles:

  1. Honesty and scrupulousness: Academic practitioners are honest and forthright about their research and its applications. Scientific and scholarly activities are performed scrupulously and will remain unaffected by the pressure to achieve.
  2. Reliability: Every academic practitioner supports and strengthens the fundamental reliability of science and scholarship through their own conduct. Academic practitioners conduct and report on their research and transfer their knowledge through teaching and publishing in a reliable manner.
  3. Verifiability: Presented information is verifiable. Whenever research results are published, it is made clear what the data and conclusions are based on, from where they originate and how they can be verified.
  4. Impartiality: In their scientific or scholarly activities, academic practitioners are led solely by academic interest, and they are always prepared to account for their actionns.
  5. Independence: Academic practitioners operate in a context of academic freedom and independence. Where restriction of this freedom cannot be avoided, it is clearly stated
