Ethics and integrity

ANU is committed to the highest standards of research ethics and integrity. All staff and students are required to abide by the Code of research conduct, and all HDR students are required to undertake a compulsory online research integrity course.

Compulsory research integrity course

The ANU research integrity course consists of 10 short modules around common issues in  research.

Do I need ethics approval?

Any research that involves humans, animals or genetically modified organisms requires approval from the relevant Research Ethics Committee. You should familiarise yourself with any ethics approvals you may need for your research as soon as possible as research must not commence until all relevant approvals have been obtained. Find out more about research ethics requirements.

Research Integrity Advisors

Each ANU College has a Research Integrity Advisor. Research Integrity Advisors provide advice about the responsible conduct of research and the University processes for dealing with allegations of research misconduct.

Data management and services

ANU provides several services to help you organise, manage, protect, and share your research data.
