Research Integrity relates to the trustworthiness of research based on the soundness of its methods and the honesty and accuracy of its presentation (Singapore Statement on Research Integrity, 2010).
USQ is committed to creating and maintaining a research culture that enables responsible research conduct and encourages integrity through mentoring, education and clear research policies. USQ recognises the need for researchers to be informed on issues relating to research integrity and the conduct of responsible research, including research ethics matters. These issues are vital to the future of USQ's research outcomes and success. Initiatives includes the 'Responsible Conduct of Research Professional Development Series' training and the availability of 'Research Integrity Advisors' for researchers to discuss their research related issues.
