University College London (UCL) Research Integrity Training Framework
The UCL Research Integrity Training Framework was created to provide researchers with the necessary knowledge and skills to ensure the integrity of their own research, as well as how to best support a wider culture of research integrity.
The Research Integrity Training Framework is based on the requirements, knowledge and skills researchers need to ensure that their research has integrity (e.g. appropriate research methods, thorough research data management, consideration of ethical issues, etc.). The framework is applicable to all researchers (staff and students) across all disciplines and can be used in two ways: Firstly, as a reference to assist researchers throughout the research lifecycle, and secondly as a tool for researchers to assess their training needs, according to the research they are undertaking. The Framework has four levels with Level 1 forming the foundation, Levels 2 and 3 providing core training, and Level 4 highlighting advanced and discipline specific training. Levels 1 and 2 are the same for most researchers, received through set training/events, such as mandatory RI-training for new staff and students. Levels 3 and 4 are individualized and allow for specific training, adapted to the context, methods, needs and experience of the individual researcher.
