Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) is just one of the ways that the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences demonstrates its commitment to excellence in research. Training in RCR promotes public trust, research integrity, and the preparation of future researchers. RCR covers a variety of topics including conflicts of interest, animal welfare, human subject protection, data acquisition & management, mentoring & collaboration, responsible authorship and publication, peer review, research misconduct, and the scientist as a responsible member of society.

All personnel (faculty, staff, postdocs, and students) participating on a federally-funded research project, including capacity funds, are required to complete RCR training every three years. For more information on the training, click here.
