The UK Committee on Research Integrity

As the UK Committee on Research Integrity, it’s our responsibility to promote and drive research integrity in the UK.  

Our vision is that the UK’s research system continues to be known for its research integrity, which: 

  • is central to the work and actions of all individuals, groups, and organisations in the research system  
  • enhances and protects the quality of research  
  • safeguards confidence in research 

We work across the research system, including: 

  • higher education institutions  
  • independent research organisations 
  • research institutes  
  • research funders 
  • public, private and third sector organisations 
Our work

What research integrity is
