Responsible Conduct of Research

Responsible conduct of research (RCR), also known as responsible and ethical conduct of research (RECR), is the practice of research that is ethical, honest, trustworthy, reliable, accountable, and adheres to professional norms. For graduate students and postdocs, training is co-managed by the Graduate School and each researcher’s primary school or department. For faculty and other senior personnel impacted by the new NSF policy, Research Integrity & Compliance will provide training.
