Research guidelines

The 2018–19 round of the Australian Antarctic Science Program (including Grant Program) is open for applications.

The guidelines for the 2018–19 round are available in this section, along with a Guidelines at a glance page, which provides some quick links to key pieces of information from the research guidelines, AAD animal and human research ethics approval processes, ionising radiation guidance, the AAD’s policy on volunteers, code of conduct in research, and the assessment process and probity plan for the current round.

Guidelines for the previous (2016–17) round [PDF] are still available.

These materials are provided on the understanding that, while all care has been taken in preparing the materials, the Commonwealth and its agents, servants, contractors and employees will not be responsible for any direct or consequential loss resulting from their use for whatever project planning purpose by you or any other person.
