Research Integrity in the UK: Annual statement 2023

  • 1. UK Committee on Research Integrity


This is the first annual statement produced by the UK Committee on Research Integrity. It gives a snapshot of research integrity in the UK, highlighting the work already being done by others and identifying areas for further work.

We have structured our annual statement around the five key principles set out in the UK Concordat to Support Research Integrity. These are: rigour, transparency and open communication, honesty, care and respect, and accountability. As well as addressing the five principles, our statement includes a section on research misconduct.

We have identified several areas where there is more work needed, and where we as a committee will focus our energy over the next two years. In developing this statement, we have used the most recent available evidence and carried out new analyses. We have described the state of the nation qualitatively and found valuable indicators of the health of the system and markers for us to understand trends across future statements.

Committee membership at time of publication: Jane Alfred, Nandini Das, Maria Delgado, Louise Dunlop, Andrew George (co-chair), Ian Gilmore, Rachael Gooberman-Hill (co-chair), Chris Graf, Ralitsa Madsen, Jil Matheson, Miles Padgett, Jeremy Watson
