UQ and Research Integrity

More than ever the public is demanding accountability of academic researchers in all fields of endeavour. The value and benefit of research depends on its trustworthiness. Trust begins when researchers act responsibly and with integrity in proposing, conducting and reporting research.

UQ is committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity in research and scholarship and considers deviations from these standards as serious. Although uncommon, research misconduct can occur at any premier research institution, including UQ.

Researchers at UQ must conduct their research in a manner consistent with the standards set out in our policies and procedures and in the 'Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research' (NHMRC et al 2007).
