Responsible Conduct of Research Course
In partnership with the Office of Research, the Graduate College offers An Introduction to Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), which introduces graduate students to major ethical and policy issues in research.
This course provides an overview of key elements of research methods and ethics ensuring Drexel students have a solid foundation of these elements in compliance with federal funding agencies. Topics covered through the course include data fabrication, data falsification and plagiarism, responsible authorship, publication and mentorship practices, conflicts of interest, data management, and the use of human and animal subjects in research.
Graduate students who are required to take the course, including those who are participating in NIH grants, will be registered by the Graduate College via request from the graduate academic advisor. The course is a 0-credit non-billable course and meets face-to-face ONLY. Grading is Pass/Fail. The course is offered once per year in the winter quarter. Quarter programs only.
