Research governance and compliance

As a comparatively small university, Bond has forged a niche community of world-renowned academics, expert practitioners and HDR students focused on targeted research in specialist fields where we can achieve maximum impact.

This community and its outcomes is guided by a framework of governance policies, procedures and practices that ensure all research is conducted ethically, adheres to legal and regulatory requirements and follows best practice in research integrity.

Research strategy and reports

The Bond University Research Strategic Plan articulates five strategic research objectives and strategies to guide research at the University over the next 5 years.
