Research Integrity Advisors

The University takes concerns about research integrity very seriously. Complaints or allegations of research misconduct can be made to the Research Integrity team. The Research Integrity team manages formal complaints and allegations of research misconduct in line with the ANU Procedure: Research misconduct and serious research misconduct.

However, if you would like further information regarding responsible conduct of research at the University, Research Integrity Advisors are available to provide confidential advice to all University students and staff members.

Research Integrity Advisors play a key role in research ethics and integrity at the ANU. They promote the responsible conduct of research and provide advice to those with concerns about potential breaches of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, 2018 and applicable ANU policies. 

The role of Research Integrity Advisors and how they can assist you

Our Research Integrity Advisors are experienced researchers from a wide range of disciplines. You can approach any RIA from any College.

There are several core principles that RIAs adhere to:

  1. Assist in understanding institutional and researcher responsibilities under the The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, 2018, and the ANU policies and procedures that support them, including:
  1. Be available, accommodating, approachable and non-judgemental.
  2. Provide confidential and impartial advice to ANU students and staff members on matters of research integrity and the responsible conduct of research.
  3. Guide staff and students to appropriate support units within the University for non-research integrity matters.
  4. Immediately declare any conflict of interest that arise and refer the advisee to a different RIA.
  5. Remain uninvolved in the assessment or investigation of research misconduct cases.
  6. Remain uninvolved in authorship dispute matters.
  7. Do not make contact with the person who is the subject of the allegation or complaint.
