Research Misconduct and Good Research Conduct

The University of Manchester is committed to fostering the highest standards of research integrity within a pioneering research culture that values knowledge-creation for its own sake, for the potential benefits it promises humankind and for the ways it enriches higher learning.

The University expects the highest standards of research integrity from the researchers it supports, irrespective of the sources of their funding, their area of research, their experience as researchers, whether they are lone scholars or members of a research team or where the research is to be conducted. 

It is the responsibility of all researchers and staff supporting research to conduct their research in accordance with the ten Principles set out in its Code of Good Research Conduct and in compliance with relevant University policies. 

The University of Manchester takes very seriously any concerns raised about the conduct of research undertaken by any of its staff or students.  Our Code of Practice for Investigating Concerns about the Conduct of Research outlines the process that we follow when we receive any allegations of research misconduct.
