Research Ethics and Integrity

All research undertaken in the department must follow the University policy for Good Research and Innovation Practices (GRIP) and the guidance contained in Research Ethics: General Principles and Statements.

Research Services provide information on Research Integrity and Ethics on the their home page. At the foot of the page you will find a section devoted to Research Ethics and Integrity and a series of links.

The new policy states that ethics approval which has been obtained for research undertaken whilst employed at Sheffield will no longer apply after the researcher leaves the University.
