Graduate Education for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2004-2006) was a research and demonstration project sponsored by the Council of Graduate Schools and made possible by a contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Research Integrity (ORI).
The goals of the project, generally, were to:
Through the project, CGS provided ten institutions with $15,000 awards to develop and test interventions and assessment strategies for the training of behavioral and biomedical sciences graduate students in the responsible conduct of research.
CGS created opportunities for awardees to share lessons and outcomes with the broader graduate community through meetings, workshops, and an active electronic forum. The leverage point for the training programs at each institution was the graduate school, and the graduate deans at the ten institutions. In addition deans from twenty-five other institutions affiliated with the project collaborated to discover the best practices to achieve the goals of the project.
The project resulted in a monograph, Graduate Education for the Responsible Conduct of Research, which identifies best practices in responsible conduct of research education.
This publication identifies best practices in responsible conduct of research (RCR) education and is aimed at helping graduate deans, department chairs, and faculty members establish and sustain educational programs that foster RCR on their campuses.
