Two new supplementary guides supporting implementation of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (the Code) are now available.  

The guides, co-authored by the ARC, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and Universities Australia (UA), contain guidance for institutions and researchers on how they can implement the Code as it relates to the subjects of peer review (the Peer Review Guide) and disclosure and management of interests (the Disclosure of Interests and Management of Conflicts of Interest Guide).

Further guides will be released over coming months on the subjects of research supervision, collaborative research, publication and dissemination of research, and the role of research integrity advisors. Until these guides are made available, institutions and researchers should continue to defer to relevant sections of the 2007 Code.

More information about the supplementary guides is located on the ARC’s website. The guides can be downloaded from the NHMRC’s website
