Kingston University is committed to acting in accordance with the principles and commitments outlined in the Concordat to Support Research Integrity. Compliance with the Concordat helps demonstrate to government, business, international partners and the wider public that they can continue to have confidence that research undertaken at Kingston is ethical and rigorous.
The Concordat sets out five commitments to which we ascribe:
We are committed to identifying a senior member of staff to oversee research integrity and to act as first point of contact for anyone wanting more information on matters of research integrity.
As part of our obligations under the Concordat, we prepare, and make publicly available, an annual statement to our Board of Governors summarising actions taken to assure and enhance the University's position on research integrity issues.
