Research integrity advisors

Research Integrity Advisors (RIAs) promote the responsible conduct of research, and contribute to the development and maintenance of a University-wide culture of research integrity, based on the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (the Code) and its supporting Guides (downloadable from the Code webpage).

RIAs act as a key point of contact for staff and students who are seeking advice regarding the responsible conduct of research, and the University's procedures for making complaints concerning potential breaches of the Code and (in the most serious cases) research misconduct. However, RIAs will not be involved in the investigation of a complaint regarding a potential Code breach.

Staff and students are able to seek advice from any RIA, even if they are from a different campus.

Current RIAs for the University:

City West campus
Associate Professor Anne Sharp

Professor Sandra Orgeig – while A/Prof Plush is on leave

Emeritus Professor Suzanne Franzway
