Research integrity is about research excellence
To effectively promote and uphold a strong culture of research integrity across the whole of the institution, the Research Integrity Office maintains close liaison with academic colleagues through the Research Integrity Champion and Research Integrity Advisor roles.
Research Integrity Champions (RIChs) act as advocates for research integrity at a senior level. They meet every two months at the Research Integrity Champions Forum to ensure that good research practices are embedded across all faculties.
Research Integrity Advisors (RIAds) support the Research Integrity Champions in disseminating the core message of both excellence and integrity in research. They act as a visible and first point of contact within their Faculty on issues relating to research (mis)conduct, ensuring that local advice is available to all research-active staff and students.
These networks of supporters within our academic faculties have been showcased as a case study by the UK Research Integrity Office in their published guidance on establishing these roles within an institution.
To find out more about the Champions and Advisors, including details of your local contacts, please refer to our internal page.
For information or advice relating to research integrity matters, including training and concerns on the appropriate conduct of research, please contact the Research Integrity Office. The following colleagues have responsibility for research integrity at King's College London: Dr Natasha Awais-Dean; Dr Alex Miller Tate; and Dr Serena Mitchell.
