Message from the heads of NHMRC, ARC and UA about the release of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, 2018

We are pleased to release the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, 2018 (the 2018 Code) and the Guide to Managing and Investigating Potential Breaches of the Code, 2018 (the Investigation Guide).

We are committed to ensuring that research conducted in Australia is of the highest quality and meets the utmost standards of integrity. The 2018 Code is a crucial part of the framework for the responsible conduct of research in Australia. The clearly articulated principles and responsibilities in the 2018 Code will promote greater consistency across the research sector and build upon the foundation laid by the 2007 Code. We are confident that the 2018 Code will help to ensure that Australian research continues to be held in the highest regard internationally, promotes international collaborations and provides all Australians with confidence in publicly-funded research.
