Online Resource for Teaching Responsible Conduct of Research Expands


The Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program of the Department of Energy (DOE), with the goal of fostering a better appreciation and understanding of research ethics, continues to participate with The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Research Integrity (ORI) and Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) in supporting an enhanced web-based project for instruction in the responsible conduct of research. BER provides support to this web site with the expectation that DOE sites will use it to derive site based ethics training for all researchers regardless of discipline. The site, Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), is found at http://rcr.ucsd.edu and is intended as a primary resource for those responsible for creating or improving programs for training or instruction in the responsible conduct of research.
