2.1 The concordat to support research integrity

A summary of the University's commitments under the concordat.
  1. As a supporter of the Concordat to Support Research Integrity, the University has made five commitments to strengthen the integrity of our research. We are committed to:
    1. Maintaining the highest standards of rigour and integrity in all aspects of research;
    2. Ensuring that research is conducted according to appropriate ethical, legal and professional frameworks, obligations and standards;
    3. Supporting a research environment that is underpinned by a culture of integrity and based on good governance, best practice and support for the development of researchers;
    4. Using transparent, robust and fair processes to deal with allegations of research misconduct should they arise; and
    5. Working together to strengthen the integrity of research, and reviewing progress regularly and openly.
  2. Each of the commitments in the Concordat places certain responsibilities upon the staff, collaborators and students who conduct research for or at the University, and upon the University as both an employer and trainer of researchers and as a funder of research.
  3. The Code aims to provide clear guidelines to any one conducting research for or at the University, to ensure that they are able to meet their responsibilities under the Concordat and other ethical, legal and professional standards.
