Governance and compliance


Research governance

Find out about how UCL expects you to conduct your research and any action to be taken in response to alleged research misconduct.

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 and UCL's arrangements for investigating allegations of misconduct in academic research. The development of UCL's research governance strategy is the responsibility of the Research, Innovation and Global Engagement Committee, chaired by the Vice-Provost (Research, Innovation and Global Engagement).
