Research integrity advisors

The University has appointed Research Integrity Advisors (RIAs) to assist researchers in addressing ethical and procedural issues in the design and conduct of their research.

The RIAs are Experienced researchers with a good knowledge and understanding of accepted practices in research who actively promote UWA’s commitment to the responsible conduct of research.

RIAs can help you to understand how to obtain ethical review, publication and dissemination of research findings, authorship, conflicts of interest, and management of research data and primary materials. Research Integrity Advisors can also advise about questionable research practices and the process of making an allegation of a breach of the codes of ethics and conduct.
