Research Integrity

The University of Greenwich expects the highest standards in the conduct of all research undertaken in its name.

This includes research undertaken by staff, students, visiting or emeritus staff, associates, contractors and consultants.

Implementing ethical principles

In order to embed these principles, and recognising its obligations to the wider research community, to the funders of research and to society as a whole to uphold the integrity of academic research, the University of Greenwich is committed to implementing the principles and commitments of the UK Concordat to support research integrity.

The UUK concordat's five commitments are:

  • maintaining the highest standards of rigour and integrity in all aspects of research
  • ensuring that research is conducted according to appropriate ethical, legal and professional frameworks, obligations and standards
  • supporting a research environment that is underpinned by a culture of integrity and based on good governance, best practice and support for the development of researchers
  • using transparent, robust and fair processes to deal with allegations of research misconduct should they arise

working together to strengthen the integrity of research and to reviewing progress regularly and openly.
