Good research practice underpins high-quality science and supports the robust evidence base needed to drive improvements in all aspects of human life. It provides strong foundations for research careers, supporting high quality education and training, and delivers assurance to those whose work builds on the findings of others. Good research practice also helps to increase public confidence and trust in the research process and its outputs. The responsibility for promoting and delivering good research practice is shared by the whole research community. Researchers should strive for the highest achievable standards in the planning, conduct and reporting of their research and demonstrate integrity in their dealings with others. Researchers should foster a culture which supports and embeds good research practice and aims to prevent research misconduct.
