Scientific integrity

Scientific integrity governs the researcher's activity through rules and values that guarantee his or her honesty and rigour. It is the basis of the contract between science and society. The Scientific Integrity Focal Point within AMU is the entry point for the academic community on any issue related to scientific integrity that will be treated in a strictly confidential manner.
