Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)
As part of the curriculum, we believe all students should understand ethical standards and dilemmas associated with research. Current graduate students in the Department of Political Science should maintain active compliance with Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training. All Political Science graduate students are required to complete RCR training.
For 2019-2020, the components of RCR are as follows:
- Completion and certification of Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI )Program - Social Science
- POLISCI 519: Successful completion and enrollment via CAESAR , a 4-hour Instructur-Lead Training session.
- POLISCI 403: Probability and Statistics. This introductory course on research design reviews a number of topics on the responsible conduct of research. There are specific segments dedicated to RCR components (data management, authorship, ethics of research).
