The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) responds to the issues of misappropriation of public research funds and research misconduct that they have been dealing with for years. In “Guidelines for Managing and Auditing Public Research Funds at Research Institutions”, which was revised on the 18th of February in 2014, and in “Guidelines for Responding to Misconduct in Research Activities”, which was issued by MEXT on the 26th of August in 2014, it is therefore ruled that University should implement of initiatives to prevent misconduct beforehand and clarify of responsibility for management as an organization. We urgently need to prepare for both Guidelines.

“Guidelines for Managing and Auditing Public Research Funds at Research Institutions”

In “Guidelines for Public Research Funds”, it is ruled that University should clarify of responsibility for management as an organization and develop base of proper operation and management.
In particular, matters that University must implement are,
(1) The compliance training for your understanding what conduct is misconduct.
(2) Management of the taking situation and intelligibility by trainees of the compliance training.
(3) Submission of the written oath etc. to acknowledge the obligation of adhering to contents of the compliance training and improve to respect for rules and morals by all faculties etc. involved in operation and management of competitive funds etc. after your taking of this training. And so on.
In Meiji University, you should take the compliance training by the document, “Guidelines for the Management and Audit of Public Research Funds In Research Institutions (For Researchers)." You must submit the written oath after your taking of the compliance training to each school office.

“Guidelines for Responding to Misconduct in Research Activities”

In Meiji University, for research ethical training to prevent misconduct beforehand, we adopted “ APRIN e-learning program (eAPRIN)”.
Target of trainees is all faculties because the target in both Guidelines is researchers involved in extensive research activities.
This e-Learning program has 3 courses, you should take and complete one of them.
You need user ID and password and the manual for this program and need an e-mail address for certificate. Please feel free to inquire each school office.
