Module 3: Conducting Research Responsibly – Protecting Yourself, Your Research, and Your University

1.3 The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research

The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007; the ‘Code’) is a joint statement of the ARC, NHMRC, and Universities Australia and has, at its core, the expectations and guidance for maintaining integrity in research, meeting community expectations, and handling allegations of misconduct. The Code provides advice on how to manage research data and materials, how to publish and disseminate research findings, attribution of authorship, obligations in peer review, how to collaborate across institutions, and how to manage conflicts of interest. At many points in this module you will be referred to specific aspects of this Code which support and work in conjunction with your own university’s code of conduct for research. This document should be made available in your research group and used as a resource to engage in discussions with your research students and colleagues.
