About Research Integrity (Australian edition)
Research Integrity identifies the principles and responsibilities required of every researcher throughout the research process, from planning through to publication, providing practical advice on dealing with complex issues.
This interactive, online programme incorporates the values and obligations of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, 2018, alongside up-to-date examples, scenarios and case studies.
Updated from a previous programme, the content and learning design has been comprehensively rewritten and restructured to drive active learning, reflection and engagement, integrating animations, polls, video interviews and a range of interactive activities.
Provide evidence of comprehensive training in the responsible conduct of research at your institution – and build confidence that staff are working to the highest levels of integrity standards
Alignment to the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct for Research
- The entire course has been revised by an Australian author to reflect and adhere to the new Code.
- The course includes a whole module (Module 1: The Responsible Conduct of Research) dedicated to setting out and explaining the principles and responsibilities of the Code, as well as explaining the wider context of responsible research.
- Module 1 includes a comprehensive diagram explaining how the principles and responsibilities (both institutional and researcher) of the Code are interconnected.
- The second module (When Things Go Wrong: Breaches of the Code) is now focused on breaches of the Code, explaining what constitutes a breach and how breaches are to be managed. It draws from the Guide to Managing and Investigating Potential Breaches of the Code.
- The entire course includes periodic reminders of the principles and responsibilities of the Code, with definitions popping up when the relevant codes (e.g. P1, R14) are clicked on.
This programme is for:
Suitable for postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and early-career researchers across five key disciplines (Arts & Humanities, Engineering, Natural Science, Social Science, and Biomedical Science)
