Research Ethics


 

Royal Holloway is committed to undertaking research to the highest level of integrity and ethical responsibility, in accordance with the internationally agreed Concordat to Support Research Integrity, whose UK signatories include Universities UK, HEFCE and Research Councils UK. The University expects that all researchers will uphold these principles.

Researchers have a duty to:

  • Ensure that all research is subject to active and appropriate consideration of ethical issues.
  • Comply with ethical, legal and professional frameworks, obligations and standards as required by statutory and regulatory authorities, and by employers, funders and other relevant stakeholders.
  • The university supports researchers by providing an appropriate framework for ethical review of research, overseen by the university Research Ethics Committee.
  • All researchers are required to record that they have considered ethical issues before commencing research through our online process for ethical review.
