Research Ethics and Integrity at Griffith University
Griffith University strongly supports the view that the degree to which research adheres to the principles of responsible and ethical design and conduct is an important measure of the quality of that work. Rather than 'just' being a matter of compliance with regulatory and professional standards, research ethics and integrity should be regarded as key elements for the design, conduct and reporting of the results of research.
Please ensure that you have considered the ethical implications of your research project on the participants engaged in your project, and that you have ethical clearance (if required) prior to commencing your research.
