It is well understood that the value and benefit of research depends on it being conducted ethically and responsibly. However, due to differences across disciplines and jurisdictions in rules, regulations and norms, it can be a challenge to understand what responsible conduct in research is and how it can be practiced.

This workshop is designed to engage all staff involved in the research enterprise in conversation about what constitutes responsible conduct in research.

The session will outline the general principles that are considered the hallmarks of responsible research conduct and use case studies to explore practices related to proposing, undertaking and reporting research.

This course will enable participants to:

1. Understand their responsibilities under the UQ research conduct and integrity policies and the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research;
2. Develop strategies for meeting their obligations;
3. Identify and learn from research integrity issues that sometimes arise;
4. Identify key sources of support and guidance available at UQ.
