Research policies

Our broad-ranging Research Policy expresses our concern to pursue research of all kinds to the highest standards and to encourage research wherever in our community it is found and whoever among our academics and students wishes to pursue it. Our Ethics Policy lays out our commitments.

London Met is also committed to pursuing research excellence – not simply in terms of its intellectual rigour and academic quality, but also in terms of its ethical and professional efficacy. This is why we endorse and uphold the Concordat to Support Research Integrity  and why we strive to achieve and uphold its values of the highest ethical standards. Our own specific Policy on supporting Early Career Researchers has been developed to support colleagues who are new to research or returning after a gap. 

As a wider commitment to all colleagues, not just early-career researchers, our Vice-Chancellor has signed the University up to the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers. Read the Vice-Chancellor's letter .
