On August 23, 2011, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a Final Rule amending existing financial conflict of interest regulations.
Two new tools are available to assist researchers with meeting federal requirements for responsible conduct of research (RCR) training. The University of Oregon now offers on-line RCR training through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). Research Compliance Services has also developed guidance for Principal Investigators for developing an RCR instruction plan as part of NIH funding applications.
The Lab: Avoiding Research Misconduct is an interactive movie produced by the federal Office of Research Integrity (ORI) that can be viewed online. In The Lab, viewers assume the role of one of four characters associated with a research laboratory – graduate student, postdoctoral researcher, principal investigator, or Research Integrity Officer – and make decisions about research integrity that can have long-term consequences. The movie touches on topics such as research misconduct, mentorship responsibilities, data management, responsible authorship, and questionable research practices.
The integrity of research depends critically on accurate, organized and accessible data. The University Libraries, Information Services, and the Office for Research, Innovation and Graduate Education have jointly developed resources that can help you with data management at all stages of your research, from conceptualization of a project to the archiving and disposal of research materials.
The Managing Your Data webpages include a wealth of resources on data management, including:
- guidance on how to develop a data management plan at the outset of your research project
- an overview of federal funding agency requirements for data management planning and data sharing
- a list of subject-specific data repositories where you can share your data
- information on research computing resources on campus
A number of workshops and training sessions have been held for graduate students, faculty and researchers on creating data management plans for NSF grant proposals and on responsible data management practices. More such sessions may be offered in the future. To arrange a workshop or training session, contact Brian Westra, Lorry I. Lokey Science Data Services Librarian.
