Research Governance and Ethics

Research integrity

City has an agreed Governance Framework for Good Practice in Research which applies to all staff and students who are engaged in or support research activity.

The Framework is designed to establish and promote a code of good practice in the conduct of research, to encourage members of City to maintain the highest achievable standards in their research conduct, to ensure that the quality of research conducted by members at City is safeguarded and to document the procedure for investigating allegations of misconduct. The code of practice also aims to conform as far as possible with equivalent codes produced by individual funding bodies.

Read City's Research Integrity Policy

New research projects

The School requires all research involving human participants and identifiable personal data to undergo formal ethical peer approval. This encompasses all research undertaken in the School, whether funded or not, and includes any research undertaken as part of an educational programme.

Guidance is also available for staff and students

Department Research Ethics Committees

Research in the Departments of the School of Arts and Social Sciences is undertaken by members of staff, research students, and taught postgraduate and undergraduate students as part of their coursework and project work. From time to time, staff and students within School conducts research that involves human participants or animal subjects. In such cases, ethical approval must be sought through the online research ethics application system prior to the commencement of the project.

Please note that research ethics approval cannot be given retrospectively and any application must be submitted before the start of the research project. You should only commence the project once approval has been granted. Data collected before or without approval cannot be used.

Economics

Research with human participants is increasingly becoming common in Economics. While many of the Department’s research projects represent very minimal risks or might not involve human participants at all, others require more ethical scrutiny. All research projects in the Department of Economics that involve human participants or identifiable personal data must undergo formal ethical review. This includes research undertaken by staff and students in their capacity as members of City, University of London, irrespective of whether the research is funded and or the source of any funding. It includes research undertaken as part of taught undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes and projects undertaken by research students. It also applies to research carried out by persons visiting the Department (e.g. visiting staff, visiting researchers).

Dates and procedure

Low risk projects are reviewed by two independent member of academic staff within the Department of Economics (this includes the supervisor where the applicant is a student). For low risk applications an initial decisions can be expected within ten working days.

Medium risk projects are reviewed by the IMJEE Research Ethics Committee.

Terms of reference

  1. To consider the ethical implications of all low risk research, experiments, investigations and procedures involving human participants or personal data carried out in the Department of Economics.
  2. To propose and review policy on the ethical conduct of research in the Department of Economics.
  3. To receive from individual members of academic staff and students research proposals falling within its terms of reference and to allow, refer back or disallow such proposals, specifying where necessary any conditions subject to which proposals may be allowed.

The Secretary to Senate Research Ethics Committee act as Advisory member to the Committee.

The Committee examines applications virtually as and when they are received. One Physical meeting will be organized to address policy or procedural issues. The Research Ethics Committee Chair and Members are appointed by the Associate Dean for Research.

International Politics

The students, researchers and academics of the Department of International Politics are expected to maintain the highest ethical standards. The Department supports research integrity by ensuring that research is conducted according to appropriate legal, ethical and professional standards. The Department is committed to foster a research environment, which promotes the core values of rigour, care, respect and honesty on all aspects of its research and teaching activities. These guidelines are used to ensure that the research undertaken by the Department will maximize the benefits to individuals and the society, while decreasing the risk and harm to participants.

Ethical approval must be obtained before any research involving human participants or identifiable personal data is undertaken. The University's indemnity will not cover research without approval and failure to obtain approval may also result in disciplinary procedures being instigated.

The Department has approximately 260 undergraduate students, postgraduate students and members of staff. Individual faculty members and research students engage with a wide variety of types of research, including but not limited to interviews, surveys, analysis of publicly available documents, reports and data. As part of their dissertation, undergraduate and postgraduate taught students in the Department carry out their independent research projects, which most often include analysis of publicly available documents and data, but also occasionally interviews. While many of these research projects represent very minimal risk or might not involve human participants at all, others require more ethical scrutiny. For example, field research in post-conflict settings or interviews with vulnerable groups, such as victims groups, could call for further ethical scrutiny in order to decrease the risks for the researcher and/or the potential of harming/traumatizing participants.

Dates and deadlines

The Department of International Politics Research Ethics Committee will consider low risk ethics applications on an ad-hoc basis by a proportionate review process. Applications will be independently reviewed by the Chair and one other member of the Committee. An initial response to the application can normally be expected within 10 working days.

Terms of reference

The Research Ethics Committee is responsible for research ethics in the Department as well as for coordinating with Senate’s Research Ethics Committee (SREC henceforth), which is the responsible committee for research ethics across the University.
