The Research and Development Office provides a range of services for researchers at Murdoch University and is responsible for the governance of all research activities:
The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007) was jointly developed by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), the Australian Research Council (ARC) and Universities Australia. It provides guidance to institutions and researchers on the responsible conduct of research, promotes integrity in research, describes best research practice, and explains what is expected of researchers by the community. Section 2 of the Code specifically discusses management of research data and primary materials.
Researchers applying for NHMRC and ARC grants must comply with the requirements of the Code.
The Murdoch University Responsible Conduct of Research Policy ensures that all research undertaken at Murdoch University complies with the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007).
All researchers at Murdoch University must comply with sections 8-10 of the University's Responsible Conduct of Research Policy which relate to the management of research data and primary materials: Responsible Conduct of Research Policy Murdoch University (2015).
This policy should be considered in accordance with the University's Research Data and Materials Recordkeeping Guidelines (2015).
