New version of Code of Research Conduct and Research Ethics released
The Code of Research Conduct and Research Ethics provides a comprehensive framework for good research conduct and the governance of all research carried out across the University
Given the current changes to how we undertake research and devolved working practices, it is even more vital to ensure the highest standards of integrity, rigour and excellence in all aspects of our research.
As part of the annual review of The Code of Research Conduct and Research Ethics, the University Research Integrity and Research Ethics Committee has reviewed and approved version seven, dated June 2020. This code applies to all research staff and students across our UK, China and Malaysia campuses.
The code is available here.
We at the Graduate School will be organising training sessions entitled Introduction to the Code of Research Conduct and Research Ethics.
More information will be announced in due course.
