Academic integrity and research integrity are related. Research must be conducted responsibly, ethically and with integrity. All researchers working in Australia (including students) must adhere to the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, 2018 (The Code).
All research at UOW, including desk-based research such as literature reviews, policy analysis or analysis of publicly available datasets; and research including people, animals or the environment, must follow the principles of research integrity. For example, if you are reviewing literature for an assessment you should make sure that you do a thorough search for literature (P2: Rigour), read all of the literature that you cite (P1 Honesty and P2 Rigour), and avoid only picking out sources that support your opinion (P3: Transparency), also known as ‘cherry-picking’.
The Code comprises eight principles and twenty-nine responsibilities shared between researchers and the organisations in which they work or study.
