Research Misconduct

Campus - masthead


As part of our commitment to research excellence, Newcastle University expects colleagues and students to adhere to the highest standards of research integrity.  Although instances of research misconduct are rare, this may occur when actions and behaviours fall short of the expectations set out in the University's Code of Good Practice in Research.  

The University takes research misconduct seriously and has developed a policy and procedure setting out how we will respond to any allegations in line with the guidance produced by the UK Research Integrity Office (UKRIO).
