Ethics Code Principle 3 - Intellectual Freedom: Uphold the freedom to research and convey research findings

The School is committed to maintaining the integrity and probity of academic research. The School’s Code of Research Conduct states that all research should be conducted to the highest levels of ethics and integrity. The Code is supported by the Research Ethics Policy which outlines the School’s Research Ethics approval process. Any staff or students conducting research with human participants or using identifiable data should complete an ethics review*.

Breaches of the Code of Research Conduct are investigated in accordance with the procedures for the investigation of allegations of research misconduct. 

All queries regarding the Code of Research Conduct, Research Misconduct and the Research Ethics policy should be directed to the Lyn Grove, Research Governance Manager research.ethics@lse.ac.uk.
