The purpose of research governance is to ensure that all research, undertaken by both staff and students, is carried out to the highest standards of integrity.
All research carried out at the University of East Anglia is underpinned by our Research Ethics Policy
The University of East Anglia has an established set of guidelines on Good Practice in Research
which provide the framework for the highest standards of personal conduct in research and applies to all staff and students. These are the minimum standards expected, with additional Professional or Funding body requirements and legislation also being adhered to.
If there are any allegations of unacceptable behaviour in the conduct of research by our staff or students the University has a Public Interest Disclosure (whistleblowing) Policy
and a Procedure for Dealing with Allegations of Misconduct in Research
For our health and social care research that involves human participants, we combine our existing high standards with those additionally required by the Research Governance Framework for Health and Social Care, published by the Department of Health and which came into effect in April 2004. We have joint arrangements with the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Trust
to manage our research governance responsibilities for this group of studies.

For staff and students of the University, UEA's governance policies, procedures and associated guidelines are available on the Research and Enterprise Services (REN) Research Integrity intranet pages
