Research Integrity and Ethics
The University expects the highest standards in the conduct of all research undertaken in its name and on its premises using its facilities. This includes research undertaken by staff, students, honorary, visiting or emeritus staff, associates, contractors and consultants.
Specific policies, procedures and guidelines related to research integrity are available on the Policies, Procedures and Guidance pages on this website.
The University is a signatory to the UK Concordat to support research integrity (2019) and is committed to its five core principles: honesty, rigour, transparency and open communication, care and respect, and accountability.
