Research Ethics, Education & Policy

Research Related Policies

Research at IU is conducted with the highest regard to the ethical and regulatory practices without consideration of the source, if any, of funding or sponsorship. This page provides links to relevant regulations, policies, procedures, and important notices that Indiana University follows when fulfilling its research mission.

Many of these documents are interpretative in nature. The Office of Research Administration (ORA), while not the institutional owner of all of these documents, has primary responsibility for their application to the conduct and administration of research and other sponsored programs. Many of these are currently under review and further revisions will be incorporated in the near future. Please send direct questions or comments regarding this page to the email listed under 'Contact us' to the left.

Please note: Some of the documents below refer to offices or services that have been incorporated into Office of Research Administration (ORA). If you see reference to any of the following offices, that activity is now the responsibility of ORA: Research & Sponsored Programs (R&SP), Sponsored Research Services (SRS) or Contract & Grant Administration (C&G).
