Abstract: The main purpose of this research is to assist Department of Life Science of Ministry of Technology in processing cases regarding misconducts of research integrity from the legal points of view. By taking into considerations of human resources burdens and legal burdens that will be borne in the following administrative suits, it is necessary to establish a complete due process and standard operation process in the early stage of case-handling. At the same time, this research will try to explore the features of misconducts of research in life science field and accordingly figure out fair and reseanable preventive measures which can decrease the frequencies of misconduct of research in life science field. The items that should be done during this research are listed as follows:
1.Assisting Department of Life Science of Ministry of Technology in processing cases regarding misconducts of research integrity from the legal points of view.
2.Cooperating with Department of Life Science to solve legal issues arising from its cases regarding misconducts of research integrity.
3.Establishing a standard operation process of how to handle cases regardingm misconducts of research integrity.
4.Clarifying the standards for judging "authorships."
5.Clarifying the standards for initiating investigative process regarding authorships.
6.Defining the requirement "resulting in material influences on fair peer review and allocation of research resources.
7.Drafting the standards of sentencing regarding misconducts of research integrity
8.Investigaing standard operation process of other organizations regarding case management of misconducts of research integrity
9.Classifying misconducts of research integrity from the views of "research process" and "publication"
10.Figuring out appropriate approaches that can assure researcher in compliance with research integrity when conducing researches and expriments
