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: 

All university staff and students involved in research activity. Primary target audiences include Academic staff, Research staff and Doctoral students. Masters and Undergraduate students with a research component to their degree are also invited to complete the appropriate discipline specific research Integrity course.

This could be your first introduction to Research Integrity before exploring the more detailed Research Integrity course, or a refresher for the more experienced.

The course consists of a core module which is an overview of the responsible conduct of research and the challenges researchers face in meeting them and five optional modules.

Optional modules include:

  1. Human subjects protections
  2. The humane use and care of animals in research
  3. Conflict of interest
  4. Safety and health
  5. Intellectual property

The course is short and easy to digest, covers the basics and could help any greater learning needs. There is no University of Nottingham specific content. The entire course takes approx. 45 minutes to complete.

Process: This is a standalone (self-study) online course. This course is delivered entirely online via an external host. You may access the course as often as you like. The link to the course together with the token needed for access can be found from this Moodle page:
