Code of Conduct for Responsible Research Practice
The University of Sydney holds researchers responsible for scholarly and scientific rigour and integrity, in obtaining, recording and analysing data and in presenting, reporting and publishing results. Rigour and integrity are indicated by:
- giving appropriate recognition to those who have made an intellectual contribution to the contents of a publication;
- obtaining the permission of the author before using new information, concepts or data originally obtained through access to confidential data;
- conforming to University requirements for working with humans, animals, and bio hazards;
using research funds in accordance with the terms and conditions under which those funds were received;
- disclosing to the University any conflict of interest (financial, personal or other) that might influence their research.
The full policy can be viewed here. You should thoroughly familiarise yourself with this document, and in particular ensure that the requirements for retention of research data are followed.
Another important policy is the Code Of Conduct for Internet Content Providers. This code relates to content providers on University Machines or providers of content which is linked with the University of Sydney
Students should also be familiar with the School policy on laptop use. The policy covers ergonomic, security and specific postgraduate student issues. A PDF of the policy is available here.
