Research Integrity Training

Research integrity is an essential part of research and research culture. It gives confidence to others, including the public, that the methods and results of research are reliable, credible and trustworthy. Research integrity covers a range of areas - from adhering to institutional policies, standards and protocols, to reporting research findings clearly and transparently.

In order to support the community’s understanding of the principles and practices that protect the integrity of research, the University provides online research integrity training relevant to all those involved in delivering or supervising research. The University expects all staff and students delivering research to complete the training.

You can access full details and a link to the training.

The University also has a Research Integrity training policy which mandates Research Integrity training for staff and students delivering research.
