Responsible research conduct is research being carried out in an honest, sound and trustworthy manner through all stages. The Massey RRC Code describes through principles and explanations, what ‘good research behaviour’ is according to internationally recognised standards.
The Code of Responsible Research Conduct applies to all research irrespective of whether a research ethics code is also involved. RRC focuses on researcher behaviour in relation to data and other academics, while the Codes of Research Ethics cover researcher behaviour in relation to participants (humans or animals). Research which does not involve participants still has the potential to create issues around aspects such as data integrity, plagiarism, authorship attribution, responsible dissemination etc and the RRC Code provides guidance about good scholarship in these areas.
