This misconducts may include one or more cases of below terms:

  1. Fabrication: making up data or results, recording and reporting them;
  2. Falsification: manipulating the research's  materials, equipment or processes, or changing or omitting data or results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record;
  3. Plagiarism: the appropriation of another person’s ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit. Research misconduct does not include honest error or honest differences of opinion.
