NDA (Ireland) Ethical Guidance for Research with People with Disabilities (Guidance | 2009)0

Posted by Admin in on June 20, 2018
 

“As the field of disability research in Ireland expands, it is vital that quality in such research be ensured.

In accordance with its statutory role in relation to disability research, the National Disability Authority offers new ethical guidelines for disability research as a resource to assist the expansion of quality disability research in Ireland. The guidelines have been drawn up through consideration of best practice internationally alongside a wide process of consultation, in particular consultation with people with disabilities.

These guidelines are designed to be used by those involved in funding, conducting, or managing disability research, most especially that which involves people with disabilities as participants. They do not replace existing general ethical guidelines in social and policy research but supplement them by providing an outline of key issues from a disability perspective.”

Authorship, Publication, and Peer Review (Guidance: QUT | 2017)0

Posted by Admin in on March 14, 2018
 

Authorship & Publication and Journal Peer Review are training programs produced by the QUT Library and the Office of Research Ethics and Integrity. You can view and download many of the course materials on this site.

This is quite simply amongst the best institutional online professional development material we’ve seen about research integrity. What we really liked was the use of researcher experience and reflection, which reinforces the message research integrity must be integral to research practice, not separate to the design/conduct/reporting of quality research. Our hearty huzzah! to everyone involved.

While conceding our conflict of interest in making any assessment of this resources page we think this page is an excellent example of a constructive approach to informing the practice of an institution’s researchers.
