Doing the Right Thing: What Every PhD Student and Postdoc Should Know about Research Misconduct

While many are loathe to admit it, research misconduct is a reality at universities around the world.  Surveys have found that upwards of one-third of researchers admit to modifying research results to improve outcomes, dropping data points, or modifying the design, methodology or results of a study to satisfy a funder.  And the frequency of researchers who report witnessing such behavior in others approaches 75%! 

What is research misconduct and why is it a problem?  What can you do to insure that your research practices are above reproach?  And what should you do if you think you have observed misconduct?

Joel Roselin, Assistant Director of Research Compliance Education, will offer a provocative and thought-provoking presentation that will address these questions and others, and present case studies for discussion and debate.

Morningside: Monday, November 12th, 1pm-2pm, room 414 Shapiro Center (CEPSR)

Lunch Provided
