Research Integrity for Staff

UNSW expects the highest standards of integrity to be applied to all aspects of research conducted by staff and research candidates. To support this, the Division of Research has developed an online UNSW Research Integrity training module for academic staff who are engaged in conducting research and/or in research training.
 
This research integrity module encapsulates expectations of excellence and supports UNSW’s commitment to creating and maintaining an environment that promotes responsible research conduct in an international context.
 
For an overview of key steps, dates and responsibilities for this important initiative, please refer to the UNSW Research Integrity User Guide.
