"Introduction to RCR" Workshop Presentation

Report
Responsible Conduct of
Research (RCR) at WSU
What is RCR?
It is appropriate and ethical
practice of research,
scholarship or creative activity
OR- don’t lie, cheat or steal
However, it is not quite as
simple as that
Is RCR Mandatory at
WSU?
It is currently directed at undergraduate students,
graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
The NSF training requirement is mandatory and
applies to all new NSF research proposals
submitted on or after January 4, 2010 and
subsequently funded.
It applies to certain NIH grants such as training
grants where the PI must submit a plan with the
proposal.
As time goes on, other agencies may adopt it.
It is best to go through the training now.

How do I Prove that I
Received Training?
• Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) will
issue a certificate noting the module completed
and the date of completion.
• RSP serves as the record keeper. If relocating
to a new institution, you may request that your
training documentation be sent to the new
institution.
• Contact Jackie Frederick, Director of Preaward
Services, RSP, [email protected] or

RSP’s role
• RSP monitors grants,
contracts and cooperative
agreements bound by RCR
rules for compliance.

How Quickly Must I
Train?
• Graduate Students and Postdocs:
Within 90 days of signing on for a
covered project. Exception- A student
concurrently taking an approved ethics
class may get credit for the modules
covered upon completion of the class.
• Undergraduate students ASAP. For 90
day projects or less, complete training
within first 30% of the project period.
Student can be mentored by qualified
faculty or receive training through Office
of Undergraduate Research.

RCR Requirements are Discipline Specific. Wright State Requires the Following*
*Note: the training material is discipline-specific as well.
Codes: R=Required; D= sub-discipline specific. D= refers to certain studies within a
discipline that the student is engaged in. For example, if it is an ecology project, then
they would not need human subjects training or even safe lab practices. If the project
is biomedical in a laboratory then human subjects, lab animals and safe laboratory
practices are required. If the box is blank then it is not required.
A Brief Sampling of What
each Training Module
Provides
In the following section, some of
the hot topic areas in the module
are discussed
Collaborative
Research
• Roles and relationships
• Management
• Across the university and
different universities
• Keeping up your end of the
bargain
Data Acquisition,
Management, Sharing
and Ownership
• Acquisition- How do you collect
the data and protect it?
• Management- Power analysis,
statistics and other problems
• Who can see the data?
• Who owns the data?

years after the conclusion of a project
Authorship and
Publication
• What effort qualifies you for
publication?
• Who goes first on the paper?
• Elements of a responsible
publication.
• Practices to be avoided.
Publication Practices
• There are strategies to
publication.
• There is an obligation to
publish.
• If you commercialize, does
that preclude publication?
Mentoring/Trainee
Responsibilities
• Researchers are teachers
• The Student to Faculty Pathway
• Mentors and trainees must spend
the time
• Mentors lead by example
• Trainees must put forth the effort
• Letting go
Conflict of Interest
Conflict of:
Research interest
Financial
Commitment
Personal (eg. You shouldn’t review
the work of someone you dislike
personally)
