Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training - Copyright Illuminated: Shedding Light on Common Myths

Monday, 09 October, 2017

Saint Louis University’s librarians will lead a workshop from 2 to 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 9, in Room 112/113 in the Learning Resources Center as part of the University’s Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training series.

This workshop focuses on common myths and misunderstandings about copyright that have implications for research and publishing. Attendees will learn about strategies and resources to engage in copyright compliant scholarship.

Registration is requested.

The presenters include:

Gregg Clark, Ph.D., MLIS, from the Medical Center Library

Erika Cohn, J.D., MLS from the Law Library

Miriam Joseph, Ph.D., MLS from the Pius XII Memorial Library

Donghua Tao, Ph.D., MLS from the Medical Center Library

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have established training requirements in RCR for programs supporting research training, career development or research education.

All graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows and trainees supported by research funds from the NIH and/or NSF are required to complete RCR online modules through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) and a minimum of eight hours of face-to-face RCR training.

The Oct. 9 workshop will count as two hours of the eight face-to-face training hours required by NIH and NSF.

RCR training requirements must be completed prior to the end of the grant-funded activity. SLU provides a series of RCR workshops to help researchers meet the face-to-face requirements set out by the NSF and NIH and sessions run throughout the year. Attendance at four workshops will enable a person to meet the requirements. Attending more than four training sessions is encouraged.
