An online research integrity course (developed by Epigeum, part of Oxford University Press) is available via Weblearn providing an introduction to research integrity (or good practice in research).

The course has been designed to support researchers from all disciplines through some of the key issues that need to be considered when planning, conducting and publishing research. Amongst other topics, the course covers professional responsibilities, designing and conducting research, relationships (both with other researchers and the broader community and the public), scholarly publication, research dissemination and impact, issues in research governance and what to do if research misconduct is suspected. Potential problems are identified, along with suggestions for how they can be resolved. Practical examples and activities are included to develop understanding of more complex situations. 

The core introductory course is compulsory for all University of Oxford research students (either on graduate taught courses or studying for research degrees). There is also a concise version of the course available which is suitable for more experienced researchers (eg. postdoctoral researchers and established academic staff). All versions of the course are available to any University staff and students with an interest in training in this area.
