Course Description

This comprehensive online course is designed to strengthen your awareness of your own responsibilities and accountability when conducting research, and provides guidance on what to do should things go wrong. This course has University of Nottingham-specific content (unlike the Research Integrity Concise course) . This extensive UoN content gives specific practical and policy guidance in all of the modules. Content is also designed to reflect the needs of all three international campuses. Look for the 'Your context' pods.

This essential training has been tailored to support researchers, and those who support research activity, from across all disciplines. The course provides a common framework and content for learning and thinking about responsible professional behavior in research. The course will ensure that you, regardless of your career stage, understand your professional responsibilities, and provides practical advice on dealing with the complex issues that can arise while planning, conducting and reporting research. If you have not had training in this area before, we encourage you to complete the course as early as you can in your studies. For those who are further into their research career, the training course will refresh your knowledge of issues relevant to your discipline as legal and professional frameworks constantly evolve.


Depending on the discipline version chosen, course core content can be covered in 6 to 7 hours. You can access the course content by selecting the most appropriate link below and then following the instructions in Moodle:
