To maintain the high standards of research practice at Cambridge, the University will uphold the commitments outlined in Universities UK’s Concordat to Support Research Integrity.
The Concordat sets out a series of responsibilities for researchers and employers of researchers, compliance with which is now a condition of HEFCE and RCUK funding.
Below are guidelines from the central University and these should be read in addition to the Clinical School policies which can be found on the Research Governance website and the Information Governance website as well as the Clinical School’s own Research Integrity website.
• Research Integrity Statement
• Good Research Practice Guidelines
• Misconduct in Research
• Policy on the Ethics of Research Involving Human Participants and Personal Data
• Policy on the Use of Animals in Research (where appropriate)
Anyone with comments, concerns or questions regarding research integrity at the University of Cambridge should contact the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research through the Research Strategy Office.
