The National Council for Osteopathic Research (NCOR) was constituted in 2003 in order to explore and assure the place that osteopathy has to play in Healthcare. The Council was established by the General Osteopathic Council, the British Osteopathic Association (now the Institute of Osteopathy) and all of the Osteopathic Educational Institutions within the United Kingdom.

NCOR aims to improve the osteopathic evidence base by fostering research, increasing research capacity and capability within the osteopathic profession, and raising the profile of osteopathic and osteopathic relevant research findings.
