Duration 2 hours
Team Researcher Academy

This online course is delivered by the Researcher Academy

The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. Semester 1 courses will be available for booking from the second week of October and Semester 2 courses from the second week of February.

Target Audience: This course is primarily intended for Researchers (staff and students) from all faculties. However, Research ethics committee members may also benefit.


The University of Nottingham’s 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, including the University’s international campuses. The Code underpins the University’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards of integrity, rigour and excellence in all aspects of our research and for all research to be conducted according to the appropriate ethical, legal and professional frameworks and standards.

The Code is a fundamental component of the research environment, which is characterised by our culture of research integrity, good research practice, and the development and training of researchers at all stages of their careers. The Code outlines the duty of researchers including their responsibilities towards all participants of research including humans, animals, the environment and cultural materials, and it provides a basis for the transparent and appropriate communication and dissemination of research findings.

The session will:

  • Introduce researchers to the university’s Code of Research Conduct and Research Ethics.
  • Provide an overview of Research Integrity and what it entails


  • To gain an understanding of Researcher responsibility.
  • To gain an understanding of Research Ethics principles and good research conduct.
  • To gain an understanding of what is available for research at the University and externally

This webinar will involve a mixture of presentation, discussion and examination of case-studies addressing particular issues and challenges.
