Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007)

 


View full details | Go to resource


The Australian Code is the Australian national reference for research integrity. The document was issued by the National Health and Medical Research Council, Australian Research Council and Universities Australia.

The sections of the Australian Code discuss:

• The general principles of responsible research;
• The management of research data and primary materials;
• The supervision of HDRs, ECRs and other research trainees;
• Publication and dissemination of research findings;
• Authorship;
• Peer review;
• Conflicts of interest;
• Collaborative research; and
• Breaches of the Australian Code and Research Misconduct

Even though the document has not been enacted compliance with the Australian Code is a strict condition of NHMRC and ARC funding. It is expected that an update to the ‘Conflicts of interest’ section will be released later in 2015. Work is currently underway to update the ‘Breaches of the Australian Code and Research Misconduct’ section.
