Researchers and research organisations are entrusted by the community with the responsibility to undertake research for the benefit of us all. Research integrity is a vital part of maintaining that trust.
Deakin is committed to creating an environment where research is not only of the highest calibre, but is also conducted in keeping with the highest ethical standards.
Deakin is dedicated to building a research community in which honesty, accuracy, efficiency and objectivity drive best practice. These values apply to a wide range of areas relevant to the research enterprise, including the management and sharing of data, authorship, peer review, conflicts of interest, human and animal ethics, publication and dissemination of findings, handling of misconduct, and training.
The primary document expounding research integrity principles across Australia is the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research. Deakin ensures adherence to the Code and its promotion across the University.
