From time-to-time we're able to promote external research opportunities to our supporters. This could include us sharing it on social media, hosting links to projects on our website, or even emailing it out to our supporters.
We will endeavour to promote research if it meets the following criteria:
Aligns with our research aimsOur focus is on funding interdisciplinary researchers from across the globe to answer the big questions in mental health. We want to improve understanding of the mind, transform treatments, and one day make mental illnesses preventable. Our priority is on promoting researchers that align with our research aims and that would meet our funding principles.
Is of the highest qualityMQ is a certified as following the AMRC principles of peer review, which is a mark of confidence that every pound invested goes to research of the highest standard and has the greatest chance of having an impact. Our priority is on promoting projects that are of the same level of quality, so we require the projects we promote to also be peer-reviewed, to ensure we are highlighting to our supporters the very best research in the world.
Has the necessary ethics approvalGood research conduct requires ethical approval for involvement of participants. This ensures the rights and well-being of those taking part in research, and is a key requirement for our own researchers too. We therefore will only promote research projects that have the necessary ethics approval. Please therefore make clear the ethics approval process your research project has gone through before submitting it to us.
If you believe your research meets all of the above criteria, then please get in touch. Due to the sheer volume of requests we receive we cannot promise we will be able to promote your work, but we will try to do so where it meets these standards.
