North Carolina State University Training Modules: Responsible Conduct of Research - These modules are like travel guides: they provide you with information and context about the sights you see and the choices you can make as you journey through your research career. On a given day you may want to consult with one guide; for a different situation, another module may provide the best information. Much like travel guides, these modules lay out your options and may sometimes offer recommendations, but the final itinerary is always up to you.
