Research Integrity

The Radford University Research Integrity Office is responsible for responding to and assessing allegations of plagiarism, fabrication, and/or falsification of data to determine if they fall within the definition of research misconduct and if the allegation is sufficiently credible and specific to warrant an investigation.

The Research Integrity Officer (RIO), Dr. Jeanne Mekolichick, reviews these allegations and also oversees any subsequent inquiries and investigations, including appointing expert members to inquiry and investigation committees.

For more information, contact Dr. Jeanne Mekolichick, Institutional Official, Research Integrity Officer, and Associate Provost for Research, Faculty Success, and Strategic Initiatives, and Research Integrity Officer, at or 540.831.6504.
