Training offered for research faculty and post-docs

January 17, 2014

The Research Integrity and Compliance Review Office (RICRO), the Office of the Vice President for Research, and the Office of the Provost are sponsoring two training sessions for research faculty and post-doctoral fellows.

The goal is to discuss how to best navigate data management and authorship in the laboratory.  

Faculty members play a critical role in training students on these topics through direct conversation, example, and hands-on experience. These workshops will cover nuances of these issues and how to best communicate with trainees. A lack of effective training in these areas can lead to conflict and disputes or in the worst case - charges of research misconduct. 

Two workshops offered

The first workshop, “Avoid Allegations of Research Misconduct through Effective Data Management,” is set for  Feb. 10, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., in the Grey Rock Room at the Lory Student Center. Daniel Bush, biology professor and Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, and Kathy Partin, RICRO director and Assistant Vice President for Research, will present on research misconduct, raw data, data exclusion, data analysis, lab notebooks, communication skills, management pitfalls and case studies.

The second workshop, “Authorship and Publication Best Practices,” will be held  March 10, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., also in the Grey Rock Room in the LSC.

Speakers, including Ellen Fisher, head of the Chemistry Department, will discuss the nuances of authorship, how this varies across fields, retractions, case studies and real-world examples.

Registration and lunch will be provided for both sessions. Click here to register. For more information, please email
