Research integrity


Research outside the UK

UCL researchers conducting research abroad, or part of an international collaboration, should be aware of the different civil, legal, financial and cultural conditions when working overseas and are expected to refer to international guidelines and conform to relevant local regulations for the country or countries where the research is taking place. 

It is expected that the research will also comply with the UCL research ethics policies and guidelines as well as other relevant UCL policies and procedures, such as relating to insurance arrangements, and risk assessment, etc.  

The International Compilation of Human Research Standards listing, compiled by the Office for Human Research Protections, US Department of Health and Human Services provides details of research ethics committees, laws, regulations and guidelines for over 100 countries.
