This page sets out Historic England's approach to research governance including research integrity, conduct and ethics.
Historic England strives to carry out research to the highest standards of integrity, in line with best practice. Our approach is described in three documents:
- our Principles of Research Integrity
- our Statement of Good Research Conduct
- our Research Ethics Policy and Procedures
(These documents have been commissioned by Historic England from Riber Consulting and written by Dr Meesha Warmington in collaboration with Historic England and the English Heritage Trust).
Information on what constitutes research misconduct and how any concerns will be investigated is contained in the 'Principles of Research Integrity' and in the 'Statement of Good Research Conduct' documents.
