How to report a potential breach in research integrity?

No formal template for reporting a potential breach in research conduct has been developed as each case is unique. The alleger reports the potential breach to the DD: R&I and the RIO in a formal letter with as much detail as necessary and attach all the documents that will support the allegation. The alleger should indicate the nature of the possible breach, the RI SOP describing the breach, as much detail about the act(s) of the researcher, as well as what documents are attached to provide the necessary merits and grounds.
