Research Ethics

The University has a responsibility to ensure that all researchers and research organisations it supports have rigorously considered any ethics implications arising from the research design, methodology, conduct, dissemination, and the archiving, future use, sharing and linkage of the data produced.

Research conducted to high ethical standards supports both the academic freedom of researchers and the reputation of the University as a centre for world-class research. Careful reflection and planning in relation to research ethics should not only benefit participants, but should also enhance the overall quality of the research.

Further information on applying for ethical approval is set out in the Research Ethics webpages.

The University publishes an Annual Statement on Research Integrity.

There are separate webpage on applying for NHS ethical review and for research involving human tissue.
