Scientific integrity

In a knowledge and innovation society characterized by the accelerated production and transmission of knowledge, Université PSL and the scientists of its 140 laboratories are committed to rigorous, honest and transparent scientific practices.

The PSL Scientific Integrity Committee

The role of Scientific Integrity Officer is entrusted to renowned researchers.

Their tasks are to:

  • Ensure the proper implementation of their school’s general scientific integrity policy,
  • Ensure the roll-out of measures and procedures for the prevention and management of breaches to scientific integrity,
  • Report to their heads of school.

These officers are the primary contact for all research players with a scientific integrity-related query, and for anyone who believes they have witnessed a breach which calls for action.

Each component school within PSL has its Scientific Integrity Officer, alongside an officer on the level of PSL. The latter’s tasks are to coordinate the scientific integrity officers of the various schools, to promote the harmonization of good practices and examine issues of scientific integrity in collaboration with the officers.
