RESEARCH POLICIES & DOCUMENTS
Postgraduate Skills Record
“A continuous skills audit is a vital part of a research degree programme. For the student it has immediate value in maintaining an awareness of strengths and weaknesses, and in highlighting developing skills. In the longer term, it serves to point out that generic skills, which are often taken for granted, can be used to enhance the employment prospects of postgraduates.”
– Professor S K Chapman, Head of Department, University of Edinburgh.
Research Ethics Framework
The University of Bolton is committed to maintaining high ethical standards in research undertaken by staff and students. The integrity of any research depends not only on its scientific rigour, but also on its ethical adequacy. Ethical issues are many and varied, and may be quite complex.
Concordat on Open Research Data
The Concordat on Open Research Data has been developed by a UK multi-stakeholder group. This concordat will help to ensure that the research data gathered and generated by members of the UK research community is made openly available for use by others wherever possible in a manner consistent with relevant legal, ethical, disciplinary and regulatory frameworks and norms, and with due regard to the costs involved.
