Concerns and complaints

If you have a concern about research conducted by UniSA researchers, or wish to make a complaint, there are several options open to you, depending on the nature of the concern.

If your concern relates to Human Ethics, please contact the Executive Officer of the Human Research Ethics Committee. Phone: 08 8302 3118 Email: humanethics@unisa.edu.au

If your concern relates to Animal Ethics, please contact the Executive Officer of the Animal Ethics Committee. Phone: 08 8302 5488 Email: animalethics@unisa.edu.au

If your concern relates to Biosafety, please contact the Executive Officer of the Institutional Biosafety Committee. Phone: 08 8302 3723 Email: biosafety@unisa.edu.au

If you have a concern about a more general matter of research integrity, please contact the Manager of Research Integrity. Phone: 08 8302 5835 Email: researchintegrity@unisa.edu.au

You may also like to discuss a matter confidentially with one of the Research Integrity Advisors. An Advisor will then be able to assist you with understanding whether your concern involves an allegation of a breach of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, or research misconduct. An Advisor will also be able to explain the University’s processes for handling a complaint, and help in deciding what to do next.
