What is the Declaration on Research Assesment?
The University of Aberdeen is committed to ensuring that research integrity and governance is firmly embedded in the University’s ethos and culture. We comply with Universities UK Concordat to Support Research Integrity. Including commitments to:
- Support a research environment that is underpinned by a culture of integrity and based on good governance, best practice and support for the development of researchers
- Work together to strengthen the integrity of research and to review progress regularly and openly
In 2020, as part of our commitment to research integrity, the University of Aberdeen formally signed The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).
DORA is a worldwide, cross-disciplinary initiative which recognises the need to improve the ways in which scholarly research outputs are evaluated and seeks to encourage institutions, researchers, funders, publishers, and other key stake holders to develop and promote best practice.
