Research Integrity: Biological Sciences & Clinical Medicine (Online Introduction Course)

Self-taught course


This course seeks to provide you with an overview of the principles, responsibilities and importance of research integrity. We will cover what research misconduct looks like, how it can be avoided and reported, and where you can find help for maintaining and promoting integrity in your research work.

This course is not intended to replace discipline specific or more comprehensive integrity training, but rather to provide the minimum level of knowledge that all employees and research students engaged in research at the University of Cambridge are expected to possess. It is particularly suitable for new staff or PhD students, and anyone wishing to develop their awareness of research integrity.

Target audience

PhD students and research staff in the Schools of Clinical Medicine and Biological Sciences
