Research policy review

The Research portfolio has commenced a review of Research policies to align with the objectives of the UQ Governance and Management Framework Policy [1.00.01]. This body of work was endorsed by the Research Committee in October 2018 and further endorsed by the Vice-Chancellor's Committee in Februry 2019. 

The focus of the review is on the PPL documents housed within 4.10 Research Management and Administration and 4.20 Research Conduct and Integrity. The policy review will assess the current state of these policies and procedures and consider recommendations for revision, deletion, demotion, creation and consolidation of documents. The aim of the project is a robust, concise and ever evolving policy and procedure suite that supports UQ researchers. 

How you can have your say

Policies and procedures open for consultation will be promoted below in the 'Broad Consultation' tab. Announcements on policies and procedures open for consultation are made through existing channels such as the Research Bulletin, UQ R&I Newsletter, and UQRAN.
