Ethical protocols

As a researcher you may require ethical approval for your research, particularly if this involves human or animal subjects. You may also be required to consult with Maori. If ethics approval is required, ensure this has been arranged before you start your research.

Scholarly communication

Scholarly communciation is an extension of "... scholarly publishing and includes both informal and formal networks used by scholars to develop ideas, exchange information, build and mine data, certify research, publish findings, disseminate results, and preserve outputs." AARL  


Developing academic professionalism is part of the journey towards becoming a researcher. In addition to representing yourself well, you'll need to be mindful that you are also representing the University when communicating through less formal networks, including social media.
