The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research establishes a framework for conducting research responsibly, ensuring high-quality research, credibility, and community trust. The Code is a joint statement by the National Health and Medical Research Council, the Australian Research Council, and Universities Australia. It outlines principles and responsibilities that both researchers and institutions are expected to follow, thereby fostering an honest, ethical, and conscientious research culture.

In Australia, intellectual property (IP) protocols for researchers involve understanding the type of IP created, ownership rights, and protection methods. IP types can include , and more. Ownership depends on the creator’s relationship with the university or institution and existing legal agreements. Researchers should document the use of third-party IP and seek permission when necessary. Protecting IP can involve patents, trade secrets, copyrights, and registered designs. The University of Melbourne provides guidance and resources for researchers on IP matters.
