What is this resource?

The Responsible Conduct of Research for K Awardees (RCR4K) implementation package provides all the materials needed to teach a RCR workshop. The materials are designed to guide early career faculty members through a six-step process to identify and manage an ethics or integrity issue in their own study or research area. This implementation package, including a detailed implementation guide, handouts, slide sets, and train-the-trainer materials, is available for download. Educators can offer this seminar to help their trainees meet the NIH (NSF) eight-hour face-to-face RCR education requirement.

If you are interested in accessing the RCR4K for educational purposes, please visit the Office of Technology Transfer website and search for Nicholas Steneck in Researchers to complete the licensing process.
