Governance and Review

The principle responsibility for Research Integrity compliance rests with Senate and is monitored on behalf of Senate by Research and Knowledge Transfer Committee of Senate. The Chair of this Committee is Professor Geoff Rodgers, Vice Provost -Research . Our named point of contact for dealing with cases of suspected misconduct or other concerns concerning the integrity of research is Mr Eliot Glover, Chief Governance Officer. He can be contacted at res-ethics@brunel.ac.uk.

Responsibility for ensuring that the code is securely embedded within the ‘local’ structure rests with the Dean, appropriate Vice-Dean and Departmental Director of Colleges. In the case of Research Institutes, this responsibility lies with the Director and Theme Leader. Responsibility for supervision and monitoring of local compliance lies with the College Research Strategy Groups and the College Research Ethics Committees (who have a direct relationship with the University Research Ethics Committee).

Research Integrity Review takes place annually using the format detailed in our code. The University Research Ethics Committee also makes an annual report directly to Council.The Governance, Information and Legal Office, on behalf of the Council of the University, assures itself of compliance in research integrity, providing feedback to Senate, Executive Board and to Council.

From 2020 we will report the outcome of our review and misconduct statements in  a  single  statement outlining how we are meeting the requirements of the 2019 concordat for resarch intergrity.

The Research Integrity code requires compliance with a number of established University Policies and Procedures. The governance relating to these policies and procedures and their ‘owners’ is not superceded by the code, but compliance with and changes to such policies forms part of the annual monitoring process for the code.
