A short guide to research misconduct
This guide aims to give useful information on allegations of research misconduct and research misconduct procedures, for anyone who has made an allegation or is considering doing so, who is subject to an allegation, or who is relatively new to research misconduct such as early-career researchers, journalists, or the public.

Designed as a template which can be adopted by research organisations or used to inform the development of their own processes, the Procedure is a step-by-step manual for investigating misconduct in research, applicable to all subject areas and suitable for all organisations engaged in research – universities, NHS organisations, private sector bodies and charities.
