Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)
Responsible conduct of research starts with understanding the definitions, regulations, and procedures for handling allegations, and case histories. For additional information, please refer to the following links. Some of the following documents are provided in PDF format. You will need the free Acrobat Reader software at the Adobe Website.
In accordance with the University policy on ethical conduct of research (December 2011) in order to comply with Federal statutes, the Office of Sponsored Programs will inform researchers, undergraduate and graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows conducting research on certain types of National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded programs to enroll and complete the appropriate RCR training.
Please review the RCR training policy above to determine if training may be applicable to your funded research. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact the Research Office. Eric Gregory, Compliance & Contracts Specialist, at (856) 256-4058 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On-line RCR training is available through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) - Web-based Training in Responsible Conduct of Research for Faculty and Students (http://www.citiprogram.org). CITI is a web-based program used by universities, other entities conducting research, and is periodically updated by veteran and experienced researchers and research administrators. The program can accommodate disabled individuals and is available in multiple languages.
New to CITI? Never created a CITI User Account? Please follow the directions below:
Already have a CITI account? Transfered from another University or recent hire that already has an exiting CITI account? Please follow the directions below:
RCR modules require a grade of 80% or higher, training is valid for three (3) years, and at any time during the training, a user can stop halfway and log back on at a different time to complete the training. Existing modules completed will still be considered completed, even if the full training course is not completed at that time.
