Research Integrity is the professional commitment to conduct all research according to the appropriate legal, ethical and professional frameworks, obligations and standards. There are five core elements of research integrity: honesty, rigour, transparency and open communication, care and respect, and accountability.
Awareness of research integrity helps protect and value individual researchers, research participants and the research organisation and contributes to the quality and excellence of research. Researchers have a responsibility to ensure that all research is subject to appropriate consideration of professional, ethical, and legal issues.
The University of Nottingham is celebrating its commitment to ‘THE CONCORDAT TO SUPPORT RESEARCH INTEGRITY’ and its values through which trust and confidence in research stem, and from which the value and benefits of research flow.
