Responsible Conduct of Research Short Course
In January 2010, an online course was developed by The Graduate School to provide graduate students and postdocs with instruction in the core principles of RCR common to all disciplines, such as data management, responsible authorship and peer review, and proper research conduct. This course provides training in RCR in compliance with mandates from federal funding agencies such as NSF and NIH.
