ECU Policies Governing Research Data Management



The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007)  was published by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the Australian Research Council (ARC) and Universities Australia. It outlines the requirements of Australian research organisations in relation to the responsible conduct of research.

Edith Cowan University has accepted the requirements of the Code and also abides by other relevant Federal and State Government requirements governing integrity and ethical practice in research.

Members of the University undertaking research are required to be aware of the provisions of the Code, relevant University policies and guidelines governing responsible practice in research, as outlined below.
