The Concordat to Support Research Integrity
Universities UK
The concordat to support research integrity sets out five commitments that will provide assurances to government, the wider public and the international community that research in the UK continues to be underpinned by the highest standards of rigour and integrity. Developed in collaboration with the funding and research councils, the Wellcome Trust and various government departments, the concordat will: (1) provide better coordination of existing approaches to research integrity; (2) enable more effective communication of efforts to ensure that the highest standards of rigour and integrity continue to underpin all our research; (3) encourage greater transparency and accountability at both institutional and sector levels; and (4) stimulate reflection on current practices to identify where improvements can be made. Annexed are: (1) Definitions; (2) Some Useful Resources; and (3) The concordat working group.
