Research Misconduct team launches prevention training

The Research Misconduct team has developed a training titled “Research Misconduct Overview and Prevention Training.” The goal of this class is to prevent research misconduct from occurring through awareness training and providing resources to researchers.

Research misconduct is defined as fabrication, falsification, plagiarism, or other serious deviation from commonly accepted practices in the relevant scientific community for proposing, performing or reviewing research, or in reporting research results. This class will define the process, as described in Executive Policy 33, provide scenarios, discuss limits of scope, common pitfalls, and tools to prevent inadvertent or unintentional research misconduct. All individuals involved in research, including faculty, staff, and research administrators, are encouraged to attend. HRS has classes scheduled for September 19, at 10 a.m., and April 9, 2024, at 10 a.m. Both classes can be found on Percipio as part of the Research Administration Series.
