Dr. James DuBois Receives ORI
Book Development Contract

James DuBois has received a contract from the US Office of Research Integrity to produce a book entitled, Research Integrity: A Casebook for and by Scientists. In January 2011, a National Institutes of Health (NIH) policy went into effect requiring a minimum of 8 hours of face-to-face instruction in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) for all NIH-funded trainees. DuBois hopes that the casebook will serve as an excellent resource for RCR training: "Case discussion is a wonderful way to engage adult learners. We will ensure that the cases we develop are true to life and provide opportunities to develop problem-solving skills."

The book will include at least three different kinds of cases. Part I will share real life stories of both exemplary and irresponsible science-to illustrate the consequences of research-both positive and negative. In Part II, Joan Sieber, editor of the Journal of Empirical Research on Human Research Ethics, will contribute cases derived from more than 1,000 interviews with NIH-funded researchers, sharing problem-solving strategies that work. Part III will provide a series of open-ended problem-solving cases. Rather than providing readers with solutions, the cases will provide relevant background information and will pose a series of questions for group discussion or personal reflection. The casebook is due to be published by the Office of Research Integrity in the early months of 2013.

This is the third in a series of contracts DuBois has received to develop products for the Office of Research Integrity. The first involved conducting a Delphi consensus survey with experts to determine what an ideal curriculum RCR would look like; the second involved developing a test bank of RCR instructional assessment items. Holly Bante, a doctoral candidate in the Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics who collaborated in the development of the test bank, will serve as a managing editor and contributor.
