Good research practice
This page gives an overview of the principles of good research practice that all MRC-funded scientists, including clinical researchers, are required to follow as a condition of their funding. These general principles complement MRC guidance on good practice and regulatory requirements for specific types of research, which appears on other pages within this section.
Principles and guidelines
The MRC ethics series document ‘Good research practice: principles and guidelines’ sets out the MRC’s expectations for MRC research units and institutes, MRC university units, MRC centres and MRC grant holders in the form of principles, guidelines and standards to foster good research practice in all MRC-funded research.
