(4) 研究者を支払いに関与させない仕組みを整備すること(旅費精算の業務委託,購買システムの導入,請求書払いの推奨等)


「研究活動における不正行為への対応等に関するガイドライン」は,研究者,科学コミュニティ等の自律・自己規律や大学等の研究機関の管理責任のほか,不正行為を抑止する環境整備を求め,不正行為を抑止するため,研究倫理教育の実施による研究者倫理の向上が要請されています。本学では全ての研究者等にAPRIN eラーニングプログラムの受講を義務付ける等して,研究倫理の確立に努めています。






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 1st of February in 2021, 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.

Our auditors check the status of data management with principal investigators.

Attendance of the compliance and research ethical training

In Meiji University, for the compliance and 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.
You must submit the written oath after your taking of the training to each school office.
