Foreword

foto espai de treballThe Code of Good Scientific Practice constitutes a framework for self-regulation. The content has been supervised and updated as part of the remit of the PRBB Good Scientific Practice Working Group (GSP Working Group).The GSP Working Group[1] is made up of nominated representatives of all PRBB Centres[2].

In the event of enquiries concerned with good scientific practice, each PRBB centre has nominated two contact individuals (GSP Centre Contacts)[3]. Any member of staff working in a PRBB Centre who has an enquiry regarding good practice should contact the Centre Contact of their affiliated institution in the first instance[4]. In the rare event of an issue that cannot be resolved by the Centre, an ad-hoc committee with representation from all PRBB Centres may be constituted under the leadership of the Director of the PRBB.
