The RIA’s can provide valuable advice on responsible research and the ethical design and conduct of human and animal research, on good practices and strategies to avoid research integrity problems/disputes, on whether a situation appears to be a breach/research misconduct, and about the University’s and integrity and ethics review arrangements.
RIA’s are not involved in the review, assessment or investigation of alleged breaches of the Australian Code and/or CDU policy but rather act in an advisory and support capacity to the CDU research community as well as contribute to the development of University policies and process and to the enhancement of practical resources and training.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor and Vice President, Research and Innovation (DVC-RI) in consultation with College Deans, has appointed RIAs across the six Colleges, providing broad discipline coverage as well as to allow for cross college engagement and advisory support.
CDU researchers, staff and students are encouraged to consult with RIA’s regarding matter related to responsible research conduct. Access the list of RIAs and their contact details.
