Research Misconduct Policy

The research ethics code of the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria (NPMCN) showed the rules and regulations required for responsible conduct of research, study, project work, assignment, case books, thesis and dissertation. Postgraduate students, resident doctors, researchers, faculty officials, fellows and members of staff of the college are expected to have the appropriate ethical and moral values, and therefore avoid research misconduct. The NPMCN will make every effort to prevent, discourage, punish culprits and stop research misconduct through training, mentoring and supervision. The outlined comprehensive policy provides information on what constitute “research misconduct”; including clear definitions, general principles, adjudication procedures and penalties.
