Research Integrity


The University of Cambridge is fully committed to the advancement of high quality academic research and to ensuring that all research activities undertaken by University employees, or on University premises, involving human participation or personal data are undertaken in a way that safeguards the dignity, rights, health, safety, and privacy of those involved. This commitment is set out in the University's Policy on the Ethics of Research Involving Human Participants and Personal Data and extends to participants, researchers, students and third parties.

To facilitate this, these pages have been established to offer guidance on the University's research ethics policies, processes for obtaining ethical review of research projects and legislation and guidelines laid down by government, funders and other external bodies.
