Ethics and Research Integrity
The University is committed to enabling academics across all career levels to achieve excellence.
Under the leadership of the Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research & Innovation), the University supports its academic community to ensure that all academic activity conducted is safe, lawful, and of the highest standards of rigour and integrity.
These standards are based on principles and professional responsibilities that are central to the protection of the academic community, participants, and to ensure public trust in the outputs that we produce.
The Research Governance team works with the Ethics Committee and its sub committees to develop and monitor relevant University policies. We also provide guidance and training to all academics across the University in governance, ethics, and integrity matters.
All academic activity is subject to a proportionate level of ethical scrutiny. The University’s ethics review process is designed to ensure that all activities undertaken by staff and students are conducted in a way that protects the dignity, rights, health, safety, and privacy of all involved.
