Research integrity and responsible metrics

  • Research integrity statement

    As an academic community, Oxford Brookes University has a responsibility to encourage and nurture the highest possible standards of intellectual honesty and integrity. We believe that all our researchers have a duty to society, to their profession, to the University and to those funding their research to conduct their research in the most conscientious and responsible manner possible.

    The Committee on Standards in Public Life (also known as the Nolan Committee) identifies principles which have relevance to best practice in the conduct of research: integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership. Together, these principles provide a foundation for the personal integrity that should be reflected in the professional conduct of research.
