The UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering values and supports responsible conduct of research. Most members of this community want to do the right thing, and by and large, they do. However, not everyone is aware of all factors that might compromise responsible research.
The information on these pages builds on 30 years of scholarship focused on promoting and protecting research integrity.

This Research Ethics website is part of an open invitation for the Jacobs School of Engineering community -- including students, faculty, and staff -- to explore the nuances of research ethics. This is intended as a starting point for conversations about ethics and education, research, and application in engineering. This is not, however, the final word. It is a work in progress designed to evolve as we learn more about what works, what needs clarification, and what should be added or removed.
