Abstract

Research conduct in Australia and worldwide is mostly unaudited. The purpose of good research governance is to ensure integrity in research through accountability, transparency and responsibility. Institutional responsibility for research governance has been adopted by Monash University’s Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, providing clear lines of accountability for researchers as well as support and guidance. A research audit tool has been developed, identifying areas where practice could be improved especially among less experienced researchers; the most common adverse findings concerned research protocols and procedure manuals. The need for participant confidentiality, privacy and data security was found to be understood, and adhered to widely by all researchers. An evaluation of the effect of audit on researchers found that the process was well accepted.
