SMD is committed to an environment that supports the highest standards of research integrity (RI).
Developing an open research environment
- We support an environment where auditing other researchers data is regarded as a normal part of the research process.
Sharing and management of research data, and reproducibility
- We are developing the capacity of researchers to deposit their raw data at time of publication on our publicly-accessible institutional publications repository (https://qmro.qmul.ac.uk/xmlui/).
- The issue of reproducibility will be considered by the SMD Research Deanery Committee over the next year.
Ensuring that our research is conducted within the appropriate ethical, legal and professional frameworks
Research Integrity: eCPD training app
As part of its strategic objectives, the School of Medicine and Dentistry puts a great deal of importance on ensuring its research staff are trained on research integrity.
Research Integrity training is available to staff as a free career and professional development app, available in the Apple and Android App Stores.
Once downloaded, staff can register using their QMUL email address. To find the module in the app, click on ‘search’ then ‘my interests’ and then ‘research’. Once staff have successfully completed the research integrity module, they will have a certificate emailed to them.
