Rothamsted Research

where knowledge grows

Quality Assurance

Rothamsted Research’s work is underpinned by a commitment to science practices of the highest academic standard and elects to meet the requirements of the Joint Code of Practice for Research. As a charitable organisation our work is aimed at providing public benefit and as such our research is highly original and innovative as well as relevant to society and to the needs of industry.  Most of our work is funded by UK Research Councils and Government departments with the outcomes published in competitive, peer reviewed journals observing our Open Access obligations.

Rothamsted Research is also committed to achieving the highest ethical standards in all of our work as described in the RCUK Policy and Guidelines on Governance of Good Research Conduct and the BBSRC Statement on Safeguarding Good Science Practice.

Complementary to our commitment to developing environmentally sustainable solutions for food and energy production, Rothamsted Research is certificated to the environmental standard, ISO 14001:2004.
