Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

Overview of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) at UNT

UNT is committed to instilling in our community of scholars a shared understanding and adherence to the principles of responsible conduct of research. The “UNT Plan for Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)” was developed to assist UNT researchers in improving their awareness of RCR topics and to address training requirements of the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the United States Department of Agriculture. These agencies specify that proposals for funding reference the institution’s plan for training in RCR topics such as:

  • Research Misconduct
  • Data Acquisition, Management, Sharing, and Ownership
  • Conflict of Interest
  • Collaborative Research
  • Publication Practices and Responsible Authorship
  • Mentoring
  • Peer Review
  • Care and Use of Animals in Research
  • Human Subjects Research

More information regarding the funding agencies training requirements can be found here.
