Summary of Changes from Previous Version

This policy was established on the date of approval recorded in its preamble section. On 5 May 2016 it was determined that this procedure was not academic in nature and was recategorised as an administrative policy.


The current version of this document is reflective of the previous published on the Policy Library with the only change to the approval authority.


An administrative amendment was made to this Procedure on 8 May 2018 to reflect that insurance advice is now provided by the Deakin Finance Insurance Team rather than the Risk and Compliance Office (clauses 16 and 26).


On 4 June 2019 the links to the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research, 2007 were replaced with links to the Australian Code for Responsible Conduct of Research, 2018.
