Oversight of security sensitive research material

UK University Guidance

UUK guidance on the oversight of security sensitive research material, 2012

Universities play a vital role in carrying out research on issues where  security-sensitive material is relevant. This guidance document concerns the  storage and circulation of security-sensitive research material.


If  circulated carelessly, such material is sometimes open to misinterpretation by  the authorities, and can put authors in danger of arrest and prosecution under,  for example, counter-terrorism legislation. Certain procedures for independently  registering and storing this material – through research ethics processes – are  recommended in this guidance.
