The proper conduct of research requires the maintenance of high standards of integrity. These standards are based on principles and professional responsibilities that are central to the protection of the research community, participants in research, and the broader community that considers research evidence in the adoption of new policies and practices.
We are committed to supporting honesty and transparency in all aspects of research and ensuring the wellbeing, dignity and safety of research participants and our researchers is protected and as well as the reputation of the university.
As such, King's has adopted the UKRIO Code of Practice for Research in order to ensure that research and the dissemination of the results of research are conducted properly.
All human subject research is subjected to an appropriate level of ethical scrutiny. Further information can be found on ethical approval here.
All research which carries any risk is subject to a risk assessment at faculty level or by the Health and Safety Department.
Our Information Compliance Team provide support to our researchers in ensuring they comply with legislation such as GDPR.
We provide training sessions through various programmes across the university, both online and face-to-face, which support our researchers to conduct their research with integrity.
