For questions on CUNY research integrity policies at BMCC contact Professor Diane Simmons, BMCC Research Integrity Officer, email@example.com, 212-220-8296.
Since 2007, BMCC has subscribed to CUNY’s Research Misconduct Policy which follows federal guidelines for research misconduct. The policy applies to all research conducted by University faculty and staff.
The aim of the policy is to foster responsible research conduct. This policy deals specifically with fabrication, falsification and plagiarism and is designed to address "significant departure from accepted practices” of the research community.
To read the policy — including procedures on handling allegations of misconduct--go to the CUNY research compliance website.

The CUNY Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is responsible for the protection of the rights and welfare of human subjects in research projects.
Such research may require IRB approval. At BMCC, see Director of Research Helene Bach for questions concerning IRB requirements.
