What is Research Integrity?    

The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007) (the Code) guides institutions and researchers in responsible research practices and promotes integrity in research for researchers. The Code shows how to:

  • manage research data and materials
  • publish and disseminate research findings, including proper attribution of authorship
  • conduct effective peer review
  • manage conflicts of interest
  • manage breaches of the Code and allegations of research misconduct

All research undertaken by staff and students at the UOW should adhere to the Code and do so with the highest level of integrity.

The UOW research culture encourages the responsible conduct of research and maintains a commitment to:

  • Honesty and integrity
  • Respect for human research participants, animals and the environment
  • Good stewardship of public resources used to conduct research
  • Appropriate acknowledgment of the role of others in research
  • Responsible communication of research results

We Promote & Support Responsible Research Practices by providing resources and guidance to all staff and students to ensure that they:

  • embed research integrity into all research activities;
  • make integrity an element of the quality of the UOW’s Research outputs; and
  • include integrity as a key quality of our graduates
