Responsible Conduct of Research
The documents below are needed when doing research.
This document provides background information on why all departmental personnel involved in research must complete the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training.
This document summarizes the RCR training requirements that must be met by all FW department graduate students, regardless of whether they are supported on research assistantships or not. This applies to graduate students who began their programs in January 2017 or later. Guidelines for graduate students who began their programs earlier is described in a separate document also covering all other research staff in the department linked elsewhere on this page.
This document summarizes the RCR training requirements that must be met by all FW department personnel involved in research, with the exception of graduate students admitted January 2017 or later, who are covered under a separate set of requirements posted on this page.
The document is intended for all personnel involved in research who, as described in the “requirements” document, must document their RCR training. This file contains the link to the Research Training Tracking System (RTTS), where RCR training will be documented. This file also contains step-by-step directions on how to use/navigate through the RTTS.
This describes the approach graduate students should use to summarize their RCR training on an annual basis. This only applies to graduate students who began their programs January 2017 or later.
This document is intended for all major professors/principal investigators. It contains the link to the Research Training Tracking System and directions for accessing the training records for an individual faculty member’s research personnel.
As we all gain experience with the RTTS and Dr. Winterstein will begin to accumulate questions, an FAQ page will be added to this site.
The following PDF’s are part of a Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training presentation provided by Dr. Dan Hayes, Professor and Associate Chairperson.
