Responsible Conduct of Research training

Responsible Conduct of Research is a required training for undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers supported by NSF awards. The next available session will be Sept. 30 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and Oct. 3 from 1-4:30 p.m.

RCR training covers core norms, principles, regulations, and rules governing the practice of research. RCR is a highly recommended “best practices” course for those desiring to deepen their knowledge of ethical research and responsible conduct. It is also an excellent professional opportunity for anyone interested in furthering a research career.

This workshop fulfills the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health requirements for formal RCR instruction. It is an NIH requirement that all BLaST Mentors, Scholars, UREs, and other funded projects participate in RCR training. UAF RCR training is open to all UAF-, UAS- and Ilisagvik-affiliated individuals (faculty, graduate students, staff, and undergraduates).

This training is a two-part training. Part one requires you to complete an online CITI Training module, and part two requires you to participate in RCR training. You must complete both parts to receive your RCR certificate. Email Carla McCain in the Office of Research Integrity to sign up!
