Research Governance

Academic Services contact for initial enquiries - Rachel Port (

To realise its research strategy and ensure that all research conducted by members of staff, honorary staff, students and individuals who collaborate in research with UCL staff and students conform to good practice and ethical expectations, UCL has adopted a set of research governance policies and procedures. This framework underpins UCL’s expectations for the conduct of research and defines action to be taken in the event that an individual is suspected or accused of research misconduct. Two key components of the research governance framework are UCL's Code of Conduct for Research (July 2013) and UCL's arrangements for investigating allegations of misconduct in academic research (March 2014)**. The development of UCL's research governance strategy is the responsibility of the Research Governance Committee, chaired by the Vice-Provost (Research).

**UCL's procedure for investigating and resolving allegations of misconduct in academic research (effective 1 February 2016)
