Find about the support available to help you conduct research to the highest standards
As part of a community of researchers that brings together excellence and innovation, we all have a commitment to upholding the highest standards of integrity and adhering to ethical frameworks when conducting research.
To help support you in conducting research to the highest standards of integrity we have developed an online resource in Minerva that aims to introduce you to the standards required, the procedures that need to be followed and the ethical concerns that need to be considered when undertaking your research here at the University of Leeds.
The online resource has been split into sections to help you navigate it and access the correct level of support you require.
The sections are explained below:
The core sections and the case studies are self-paced and have been designed for you to keep referring back to it and revisiting them whenever you need to. We recommend if you are new to the University research community that you complete the core sections as soon as possible before moving on to exploring case studies and the more specialised support.
The specialised section features a mixture of face-to-face sessions (when we are back on campus), online live sessions, asynchronous training and networks to support development in specific areas.
Research involving animals is carried out in line with Home Office requirements and guidance and is reviewed separately by the University’s Animal Welfare and Ethical Review Body. Further information can be obtained by contacting the University’s Home Office Liaison Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org and on the animal research webpages.
