Research ethics policy

At the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), we believe it is important that we look at the ethical aspects of all the work we do. It is our aim to ensure that our  research teams and their collaborators manage their research with integrity and to the highest standards.  Our ethical approach is based on UK Government best practice guideance for standards of conduct.

We apply the principles outlined in the RCUK Policy and Guidelines on the Governance of Good Research Conduct which is based on is set in the context of the Universities UK Concordat to Support Research Integrity; in the NERC Corporate Responsibility policy; as well as the UK Government’s Universal ethical code for scientists.
