Principles of Research
          Research misconduct means fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in  proposing, performing or reviewing 
          research, or in reporting research results. 

         (a) Fabrication is making up data or results and recording or reporting them.

         (b) Falsification is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting data or 
               results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record.

         (c) Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, processes, results, or words without giving 
               appropriate credit.

        (d) Research misconduct does not include honest error or differences of opinion.
