Response to Research Councils UK consultation on the code of conduct on governance of good research conduct in 2008.

During the summer of 2008, RCUK published for consultation on a Code of Conduct and Policy on the Governance of Good Research Conduct.

The consultation concerns not only core issues of plagiarism and falsification of data, but also such areas of proper representation of credentials and findings, conflicts of interest, access to data for replication, abuse of peer review, and informed consent and protection of research subjects. It also covers concern about whether weaknesses and cases of poor conduct which have been identified are fully pursued and publicly available, so they are unlikely to be repeated.

The RIN submitted a response in October 2008, focusing on those aspects of the Code that relate to data sharing and management.
