Scientific Integrity Plan
As part of its commitment to supporting an environment of excellence in research, UNM approved the Scientific Integrity Plan in May 2010 and has since updated the document several times to reflect institutional and regulatory changes. UNM's Scientific Integrity Plan (SIP) establishes guidelines and appropriate standards for RCR instruction, and complies with the regulations of the National Science Foundation (NSF), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), and National Health Institutes (NIH).
