Keywords: research governance, code of ethics, culture of research integrity.


The article explores the issue of formation of integrity research environment in universities. National legislation on implementation of academic integrity policies and procedures in Ukrainian universities is analyzed. To evaluate experience and practices of Ukrainian universities in assuring research integrity, the documents presented on websites of three leading Ukrainian universities according to the National Ranking «Top 200» (2019) are analyzed and compared with the documents used in the process of ensuring research integrity by UK universities as world leaders in higher education. Possible measures for overcoming the crisis of research integrity in Ukrainian universities are proposed.
