Research Ethics

All research involving Lancaster University staff and students should conform to the Code of Practice. Details of the internal processes can be found in the procedures document and from the faculty ethics web pages (see key contacts).

If you are conducting research involving animals, read the information about Lancaster University's Animal Welfare and Ethical Review Body (AWERB) first.
