Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Workshop: 'Authorship and Peer Review: Navigating the Waters'

Wednesday, 29 January, 2020

Stephanie Solomon Cargill, Ph.D., will lead a workshop, “Authorship and Peer Review: Navigating the Waters,” from 3 to 5 p.m., on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, as part of the University’s Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training series, Room 110, Learning Resources Center.

This workshop is intended to provide attendees with background on what constitutes authorship, unethical authorship practices and how to navigate authorship disputes. It will also discuss ethical challenges with peer review such as conflicts of interest and confidentiality.

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.

This 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 throughout the year to help researchers meet the face-to-face training requirements set by the NIH.

Attendance at four workshops will enable a person to meet the requirements. Attending more than four training sessions is encouraged. This training is also highly recommended for all other research positions, including faculty, regardless of funding source or who are as-yet unfunded.

Registration is requested.
