Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

To promote research integrity, ethical conduct in research, and to comply with federal requirements, Missouri State encourages all student and faculty researchers to be trained in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). Missouri State requires graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows, associates, and trainees supported by specific federal research funds to be trained in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) within 90 days of the start of support by the federal awarding agency. This requirement can be fulfilled by completing University-approved training. Those designated as Mentors to the covered individuals will also be required to complete the training within the same time period. The training will cover instructional areas as designated by the Office of Research Integrity, Department of Health and Human Services.

Please see the RCR Policy and RCR Training page for more information.
