Research Ethics and Integrity

The Academic Development Directorate provides guidance on research ethics and integrity through the Research Ethics and Integrity webpage. On this page, you will find links to the University’s Ethics Policy and Research Misconduct Policy. There is also guidance on the process for acquiring research ethics approval for students and staff.

The page also explains the University’s compliance with the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, and Prevent Duty for Higher Education 2015.

Details of the Cross-School Research Ethics Committees are given including their current chairs and terms of reference.

Research integrity is also outlined and reference is made to the University’s Code of Practice for Research Integrity, which complies with the Concordat to support research integrity.

There are also a number of additional resources such as guidance notes for preparing a consent form, guidelines for research with children and young people, data protection information and more.
