The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, 2018 (2018 Code) is a document which articulates the broad principles and responsibilities which underpin the conduct of Australian research. The Authorship Guide and the Management of Data and Information in Research which accompany the 2018 Code are now available for download.
Developed jointly by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), the Australian Research Council (ARC), and Universities Australia, the 2018 Code and accompanying Guides have relevance across all research disciplines.
Adherence to the 2018 Code is a prerequisite to receive funding by the NHMRC.
NHMRC, ARC and Universities Australia are currently developing further guides to support the 2018 Code which are planned for release later in 2019.
