ACU Code of Conduct for Research
The ACU Code of Conduct for Research (PDF, 630KB) is a policy adopted by Australian Catholic University on the appropriate practices for the conduct of research. It is intended to be read in the light of other ACU Policies and Procedures.
Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research
The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research guides institutions and researchers in responsible research practices and promotes integrity in research for researchers. The Code shows how to manage breaches of the Code and allegations of research misconduct, how to manage research data and materials, how to publish and disseminate research findings, including proper attribution of authorship, how to conduct effective peer review and how to manage conflicts of interest. It also explains the responsibilities and rights of researchers if they witness research misconduct.
Appointment of ACU Research Integrity Advisers
The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the Australian Research Council (ARC) have announced the members of the Australian Research Integrity Committee (ARIC), a new independent body to ensure transparency and accountability in research. The ARIC is being jointly established by the ARC and NHMRC and its role is to review the processes by which institutions, including universities, medical research institutes and hospitals, investigate allegations of research misconduct, ensuring any investigation meets the requirements in the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007) - (ARC website).
