The ARC and NHMRC have released four new guides which support the implementation of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (the Code):
- Authorship Guide
- Management of Data and Information in Research Guide
- Peer Review Guide
- Disclosure of Interests and Management of Conflicts of Interest Guide
All NHMRC guides will assist the University of Adelaide with implementation of the 2018 Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research. The Authorship Guide has already informed the revision of the University’s Authorship Policy, and the Management of Data and Information in Research Guide will inform the revision of the University’s Research Data and Primary Materials Policy, which will commence soon.
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 and existing institutional policies.
