SMD is committed to an environment that supports the highest standards of research integrity
Deputy Dean for Research Integrity
Professor Grigg advises SMD on emerging Research Integrity themes from sources such as Retraction Watch, the Committee on Publication Ethics, the World Conference in Research Integrity, and the UK Research Integrity Office.
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. Over the next year the SMD Research Deanery will be lookinging into the issue of reproducibility.
Ensuring that our research is conducted within the appropriate ethical, legal and professional frameworks
SMD is committed to the principals of the UUK Concordat to Support Research Integrity with Queen Mary's Vice-Principal (Research and Innovation) having the overall responsibility for Research Integrity including the publication of the Annual Report.
Allegations of misconduct are investigated according to standard protocols and Faculty Leadership are always available to discuss Research Integrity concerns. Finally Professor Jonathan Grigg can be contacted via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Research Integrity: eCPD training app
As part of our strategic objectives, the School of Medicine and Dentistry puts a great deal of importance on ensuring our 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, a certificate will be emailed to them.
