While most universities have separate integrity policies for coursework and research students, the recently revised Australian Higher Education Standards Framework (TEQSA 2015) use the combined term ‘academic and research integrity’. This is leading to an increased focus on the alignment of policies, procedures and programs that support the promotion of integrity in higher education and minimise the risk of academic and research misconduct by HDR students and research staff. This symposium will offer teaching staff, researchers and HDR stakeholders an opportunity to consider the alignment of academic and research integrity on three themes:
- new challenges to research integrity and ethical conduct in the current higher education environment
- supporting ethical writing and research practices by HDR students
- pressure to publish, peer review process and other perplexities
While the focus of the symposium will be on round table discussion, interested participants are invited to send abstracts for short 10 minute presentations around the key theme of aligning research and academic integrity.
Due date for abstracts: Friday, 3rd October 2016.
Please send 200 word abstracts with a short bio to firstname.lastname@example.org
