What is research integrity?

Research integrity is conducting and disseminating research in an honest, fair, responsible and respectful way.  This process is guided by the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research and lists responsibilities for researchers to:

  • maintain high standards of responsible research
  • report research responsibly
  • respect research participants
  • respect animals used in research
  • respect the environment and
  • report research misconduct

Further resources

  • Support and training for graduate researchers (postgraduate research students) is available through the Research Education Development unit. 
  • One-to-one consultations for guidance with your writing is available through the Pathfinder.
  • To develop your skills for undergraduate research, check out the Finding information and Writing modules, or drop in to see a Peer Learning Advisor in the Library.
  • Research integrity is essential for anyone conducting research, whether you are an undergraduate or postgraduate student, or staff member.
