Research Integrity Training FY 2023

The Kyoto University Action Plan for the Promotion of Research Integrity was established to promote education on research ethics and related matters at Kyoto University. In accordance with the plan, Kyoto University provides mandatory research integrity training for faculty members, researchers, and graduate students in the form of an APRIN e-learning program. The APRIN e-learning program must be taken at least once per specified three-year period. FY 2023 is the third year of the three-year period 2021–2023. Faculty members, researchers, and graduate students who did not take the course in FY 2021 or 2022 are therefore required to take it in the current period.

The course is not mandatory for undergraduate students, non-regular students (research students, auditing students, etc.), and non-research staff, but such persons are recommended to take the course electively, and all persons who will co-author an academic paper must take the e-learning course in advance.
