Integrity in practice toolkit

Last modified: October 30, 2018

“… a toolkit for those who want to continue to support and improve research integrity and culture in their organisation. It is a joint project from the Royal Society, as part of its Research Culture Programme, and the UK Research Integrity Office (UKRIO), as part of their ongoing work programme in support of research integrity.”


“The aim of the toolkit is to inspire creative thinking in this area. It features a variety of new ideas from across the UK and the rest of the world, which require minimal to major resource support and can be led by individuals as well as institutions. The toolkit contains within it seven ways that could help individuals and institutions bring life to the codes, concordats and pledges to improve research integrity and culture that they have signed up to.”

  1. Creating informal channels to openly discuss research integrity
  2. Creating a dialogue around research integrity and culture
  3. Agreeing shared expectations
  4. Constructing an environment that nurtures training
  5. Developing a research environment to be proud of
  6. Embedding research integrity into institutional culture
  7. Fostering community ownership of research integrity
