The conduct of research at UQ by both staff and students is governed by a number of policies to ensure that it is both of a high standard and is conducted ethically. Research students are expected to be both familiar with these policies and to follow them conscientiously. Some of the most important policies are the following:

Guidelines on ethical research and ethical approval forms for research involving humans or animals (some schools have their own specific forms)

  • Other relevant policies can be found here

Also, see The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (PDF) (guidelines on authorship can be found in section 3).
