Academic professionalism

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.

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.

Library support

Most divisions and schools have dedicated Subject Librarians who are available to support you in your research.
