AAMRI Feedback on the NHMRC draft Guide to Publication and Dissemination of Research

30th September, 2019

AAMRI provided feedback to the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) on the draft Guide to Publication and Dissemination of Research. This guide forms part of a series of guides that support the 2018 Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research.

AAMRI supports the  development of the guide and the principles outlined in the draft. However, there are a few areas which would benefit from further clarity including the definitions of key terms used, application of the guide and expectations for resourcing to implement the guidance provided.

As well as specific feedback on sections of the guide, AAMRI recommended including case study examples as has been provided in some other guides to assist researchers and organisations greatly in meeting their responsibilities under the Code.
