Research Governance at Alfred Health

Researchers owe a duty of responsibility to society, their profession, their institution, and where relevant, to external funding agencies, to be fully responsible for their own research conduct as well as for the activities of any staff or students under their direction. This includes responsibility for the ethical conduct of that research, for the safety of all those involved and for proper financial management of research funds.

To ensure that all research conforms to good practice and ethical expectations, Alfred Health has, available on the website, a set of policies, guidelines and procedures that accord with The Australian Code for Responsible Conduct of Research (2007) and Alfred Health's Policy on Responsible Conduct of Research.

These include Alfred Health’s expectations for the conduct of research and action to be taken in the event that an individual is suspected or accused of research misconduct.

There are two parts to the Code:

Part A: Principles and practices to encourage responsible research conduct

  • General principles of responsible research
  • Management of research data and primary materials
  • Supervision of research trainees
  • Publication and dissemination of research findings
  • Authorship
  • Peer review
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Collaborative research across institutions

Part B: Breaches of the code, research misconduct, and the framework for resolving allegations

Contact Nicole Rosenow, Senior Research Governance Officer (9076 5491), for any enquiries about research conduct/governance.
