Research integrity and ethics
Stockholm University protects the quality, integrity and independence of research, and this requires research to be carried out in accordance with good research practice.
Research integrity and ethics issues can arise in all areas of research, not the least when it comes to publication and handling of research materials, but to some kinds of research specific rules apply, for instance research on humans and personal data and animal experiments. Ethical considerations may also arise in research collaborations, and research funders may have specific ethics requirements.
Research integrity and ethics support
The Office for Research, Engagement and Innovation Services provides support relating to research integrity and ethics. Common questions concern ethical review of research involving humans, informed consent from research subjects, ethics guidelines, publication issues and other issues relating to good research practice.
The Office for Research, Engagement and Innovation Services organizes seminars on relevant topics on a regular basis, and continually monitors the development in this area.
Handling of research misconduct
From 1 January 2020 suspicions of research misconduct shall be investigated by the National Board for Assessment of Research Misconduct (NPOF). Information about the legislation and the University’s internal processes concerning suspicions of research misconduct and other deviations from good research practice can be found via the link below.
