Editorial Policy

This page sets out the Editorial Policy of the Royal Institution.

The Royal Institution is a forum for the free and open discussion of ideas, and we recognise the fundamental importance of freedom of speech within the law.

All speakers who contribute to any of our programmes represent their own views and do not necessarily represent the views of the Royal Institution.

We aim to release high-quality engaging Ri Talks which encourage our audience to think more deeply about the wonders and applications of science.

To achieve this we reserve the right to edit Ri Talks before they are published.

We also reserve the right not to publish pre-recorded Ri Talks at our own discretion.
