This session will introduce candidates to the research integrity framework within which they will operate while at UQ. It will explain the basis of research integrity policies, the principal polices, advisors' and candidates' main obligations, and the key sources of support and guidance that are available. The session will also cover issues such as conflict of interest (COI), plagiarism and authorship, copyright issues, intellectual property, patents and trademarks.

This course will enable participants to:

1. Understand the principles behind research integrity policies, and the national and international codes which influence UQ

2. Understand the policy framework within UQ

3. Identify and discuss the sorts of research integrity issues that commonly arise

4. Identify the key sources of support and guidance for HDR candidates at UQ

[This workshop differs from the mandatory online Research Integrity module which must still be completed as part of the Confirmation milestone.]

About Integrity and ethics

The responsible conduct of research – including adherence to ethical and professional protocols in research practice and publication – forms the basis of research which is trusted and valued in the broader community. The integrity of research therefore, relies on researchers who act responsibly and follow the relevant codes of practice.
