Good Research Practice

(Please note this policy is to be updated.)

The University of Cambridge's guidelines on Good Research Practice have been developed to emphasise the importance of integrity and rigour in all research carried out at, and in partnership with, the University. The policy covers openness, supervision, training, intellectual property, the use of data and equipment, publications of research results and ethical practice.

The University’s guidelines on Good Research Practice is available here.
