Research Policies and Resources

    Research requires the cooperation of individuals with a broad range of expertise and the use of a wide variety of materials and equipment. In response to federal government requirements, Harvard University has developed policies and guidelines designed to ensure that these activities are conducted with integrity and with due regard for the health, safety, and privacy of everyone concerned. Below you will find a link to University-wide research policies and, where available, Faculty Handbooks provided by individual Schools with specific information on research and research management.
