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).

BEL Workshops

Join us for an engaging, hands-on, discussion-based workshop exploring ‘real-life’ scenarios tailored to reflect the types of research undertaken in BEL Schools. The workshop will: 

  • explore the underlying practices and behaviours that may constitute research misconduct;
  • emphasise the foundations of responsible conduct of research based upon UQ policies and procedures and the Australian Code;
  • identify the potential impact of research misconduct and help you ensure you are following best practice; and
  • provide advice on seeking assistance when you have a concern.

Speakers include Dr Sue O’Brien, Research Integrity Manager, Office of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research and International); Professor Sara Dolnicar, BEL Research Integrity Adviser; Professor Victor Callan, BEL Associate Dean (Research); with introductions by Professor Andrew Griffiths, Acting Executive Dean.
