Research outside Australia

Offshore research might have legal, social or cultural implications which would not be an issue if the research was carried out in Australia. Researchers are responsible for ensuring that research conducted offshore is culturally appropriate and complies with the legal requirements of the overseas country and complies with Australian ethical standards.

Overseas research might involve Indigenous people. As with research involving Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, you should ensure that your proposed research is culturally appropriate by consulting with representative bodies.

Approval of your research by UniSA HREC or DEC ensures that you will be appropriately covered by the University's insurance policy for research that you conduct offshore.
