Have questions about export controls (ITAR/EAR), conflicts of interest, research misconduct, plagiarism, IRBs, clinical trials, animal use, or flying UAVs on campus?
The College of Engineering has a compliance liaison, Elizabeth Wagner (734.647.7007, email@example.com), on hand to help you navigate the compliance processes. She can point you to the right people and resources, and help you as needed along the way.
Conflict of Interest:
- Learn about the College of Engineering’s Conflict of Interest policy.
- How to disclose:The M‐Inform disclosure system is available via Wolverine Access. The direct link is https://minform.it.umich.edu.
- General information regarding the disclosure process: http://research.umich.edu/conflict‐of‐interest/outside‐interest‐disclosure/.
- Directions on how to disclose: http://www.umich.edu/~eresinfo/ercm/MInform_discloser_SubmitDisclosure.html
- U-M Conflict of Interest Policy http://spg.umich.edu/policy/201.65-1 and https://www.provost.umich.edu/programs/COI_COC/All faculty with primary appointments in CoE, including tenured/tenure track, professors of practice, research scientists/professors, and lecturers, must use the M-Inform online system to disclose any activities that pose potential conflicts of interest/commitment in the M-Inform system. Disclosures and department reviews should be completed before the end of each fiscal year. Faculty with financial conflicts of interest may have additional disclosure requirements.
- If you have questions, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Faculty: see the ADAA site.
- Graduate students and postdoctoral research fellows: use this guidance document.
- Are you considering or starting a project with export control restrictions? Does your project have special IT security requirements? Do you need help with a Technology Control Plan?
- Are there publication or foreign national restrictions on your research?
- Give Elizabeth a call at 734.647.7007 or swing by 1008 LEC to learn more about available resources.
- Email email@example.com to be provisioned with ITAR-compliant ITS Exchange email, with your uniqname and full name with a cc to your department IT manager. It typically takes 24 to 36 hours to be provisioned.
- The University of Michigan Office of Research is now providing a plagiarism detection software application, iThenticateTM, for faculty use.
- The iThenticate system is designed to verify originality in published works and research proposals. It allows you to compare the text of your uploaded documents against the internet and a content database of over 150 million source materials (e.g., periodicals, journals, newspapers, scholarly articles, abstracts, books, archived web pages).
- For more information and links to training, see the UMOR website (http://research-compliance.umich.edu/research-integrity/plagiarism-detection) and the FAQs, which can be found below.
- To learn more about how journals use iThenticate, check out these blogs from Professor Mike Liemohn, the JGR-Space Physics Editor-in-Chief
- RCRS workshops are designed for Ph.D. students, postdoctoral research fellows, and any Master’s or undergraduates who are NSF/NIH funded. This faculty-led training teaches students and fellows about best research practices and engineering ethics.
