All researchers at Murdoch University must comply with the University's Research Integrity Policy (2020).
The Murdoch University Research Integrity Policy promotes the principles of research integrity detailed in the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research.
The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2018) 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. Principle 3 and Responsibilities 8 and 22 of the Code specifically discuss the management of research data and primary materials.
Researchers applying for NHMRC and ARC grants must comply with the requirements of the Code.
For researchers conducting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research projects, the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research should be read in conjunction with the AIATSIS Code of Ethics for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research (2020).
