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 guidance 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.
Both the course content and learning design have been comprehensively revised to integrate the the principles, practices and responsibilities set out in the Code, and drive active learning, reflection, and engagement, integrating animations, polls, video interviews, and a range of interactive activities.
The programme will provide evidence of comprehensive training in the responsible conduct of research at your institution and build confidence that all researchers are working to the highest levels of integrity standards.
Alignment to the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct for Research
- Module 1: The Responsible Conduct of Research explores the principles and responsibilities of the Code, as well as presenting the wider context of responsible research. It includes an interactive diagram that presents how the principles and responsibilities of the Code are interconnected.
- Module 2: When Things Go Wrong: Breaches of the Code is focused on breaches of the Code, explaining what constitutes a breach and how breaches can be managed. It draws on the Guide to Managing and Investigating Potential Breaches of the Code.
- The entire programme includes periodic reminders of the principles and responsibilities of the Code, with definitions linked to references to relevant component parts (e.g. P1, R14).
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)
