The University of Stirling is committed to the highest possible ethical standards. We promote a culture of best practice and integrity in all our research through the core values of honesty, rigour, open communication, care, and respect. To safeguard the interests of researchers, participants and funding bodies, research within the University only proceeds after strict scrutiny by one of our three internal Research Ethics Committees.
The GUEP considers most research proposals which do not involve animals, require approval by the NHS Research Ethics Committee or involve physically invasive procedures or intrusive interventions on human participants.
