We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Policies, Forms and Freedom of Information

Policies and standards

All relevant policies are now harmonised across the research councils, and all harmonised policies can be found on the UK Research and Innovation website.

Code of Practice - This Code is intended as a guide to all members of the Arts and Humanities Research Council's Council, committees, Peer Review College, and other advisory groups, and sets out how the AHRC conducts its business and guides members in their duties.

It is based upon the guidance issued by government about the conduct of members of non-departmental public bodies (see reference 1 below), as well as The Seven Principles of Public Life, which should be observed by all those serving the public.

Complaints procedure - The AHRC is committed to providing an accessible, high quality, efficient, and accurate service in all its interactions with its/our community.

Data Policy - Making research data available to users is a core part of the Research Councils’ remit and is undertaken in a variety of ways.

Equality and Diversity Policy - The AHRC is committed to the promotion of equality of opportunity and diversity. This policy outlines that commitment, which is endorsed and supported by our Council and the Senior Management Team.

Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking Statement - The AHRC is committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking.

Peer Review Framework - This Framework sets out what the AHRC will and will not disclose, under the Freedom of Information Act, regarding the peer review process.

Research Integrity - UK Research and Innovation aims to help researchers and research organisations to undertake and manage research to the highest standards and provides guidance on the reporting and investigation of unacceptable research conduct.

The Seven Principles of Public Life - The AHRC is committed to following The Seven Principles of Public Life.
