Implementing the Australian Code 2018

AHRECS has many years’ experience assisting research institutions of all sizes and all levels of research culture with these matters. While we are all waiting for the good practice guides to be released we could:

1. The word 'Success' on a green jigsaw puzzle with the final piece just about to be added.Conduct a desktop audit of your existing policies, processes and resources to evaluate the degree to which you are already ready for 1 July 2019.

2. Based on the audit, draft a short overarching research integrity policy for your institution, accompanied by notes on how to modify existing policies so that they implement that policy.

3. Create a template for your new resources.

4. Design a communication and professional development plan so you can implement the changes in a few weeks, rather than months.

5. Develop research integrity resource materials in response to the new Guide to Managing and Investigating Potential Breaches of the Code (the Investigation Guide) and other Good Practice Guides when they become available.

6. Design and deliver professional development modules tailored to the need of your researchers.

Please send an email to if you would like to discuss how AHRECS can support your response to the new Code.
