Responsible Conduct in Research and Scholarship

Thursday, August 22, 2013 to Friday, August 23, 2013

Description

The Associate Provost for Research has established a Responsible Conduct of Research and Scholarship (RCRS) program on the LUC Lakeside Campuses to foster a culture of ethical conduct, consistent with the LUC Mission Statement:

    We promote the use of ethical principles in personal decision-making and professional behavior.


    The RCRS program comprises three components. First, the program includes a no-credit course that is required for all faculty and students engaged in research involving NSF and NIH funding, when mandated by the terms of the grant. Other federal agencies may also include RCRS requirements in their award announcements. In addition to providing a basic foundation for every course participant, the program will partner with individual departments throughout the University to sponsor and promote presentations, seminars, and workshops that cater to faculty, staff, and students. Individual faculty who wish to incorporate core components of the RCRS program into their course syllabi are welcome to work with ORS in doing so. Second, ORS will sponsor an Ethics Series throughout the academic year. The intent here is to cover ethical issues and standards related directly to specific disciplines. Third, an online website will serve as a resource for faculty, staff, students and other members of the Loyola and will feature key components of research integrity and ethics as well as important links to relevant agencies and institutions involved with RCR. Loyola RCRS program includes instruction in core areas recommended by the Office of Research Integrity and scientific societies. These include:
    Research Misconduct
    Conflicts of Interest and Commitment
    Data Management Practices: data ownership, collection, protection and sharing
    Mentor and Trainee responsibilities
    Collaborative Research
    Responsible authorship and publication practices
    Peer review
    The Protection of Human Subjects
    The Welfare of Laboratory Animals

    Consistent with its mission and core values, Loyola also offers additional RCRS instruction on research ethics and teaching ethics.
