Concordat to Support Research Integrity

Concordat to Support Research Integrity

The Concordat to Support Research Integrity was revised in October 2019, representing a renewed ambition to further strengthen the original Concordat, published in 2012. It provides the principles and commitments to ensure that research produced by, or in collaboration with, UK universities, research institutes, and other undertaking research is underpinned by the highest standards of rigour and integrity.

The new Concordat retains the five core commitments of the 2012 version. All those engaged with research must be able to make the below commitments:

  • Maintaining the highest standards of research integrity.
  • Ensuring that research is conducted according to appropriate ethical, legal, and professional frameworks, obligations, and standards.
  • Embedding a culture of research integrity.
  • Dealing with allegations of research misconduct.
  • A commitment to strengthening research integrity.
