Regarding Research Ethics Guidance
In the Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, in order to ensure understanding and thorough general awareness of research ethics and the Graduate School’s "Research Ethics Guidelines", research ethics guidance (simplified version and detailed version) will be conducted along with an understanding test for students.
Students will be required to attend both the simplified version and detailed version of ethics guidance and to score higher than a passing grade on the understanding test to submit a thesis.
In addition, students from the Graduate School master's program advancing to doctoral programs also must attend the guidance again after enrollment as well as score higher than a passing grade on the understanding test, otherwise you will not be able to submit a thesis.
