Building a Culture of Responsible and Ethical Research: Supporting Ethical Authorship and Responsible Publication Practices for Successful Grants Management
This interactive two-day training program is designed to examine the relationship between research integrity issues and successful grants management.
As research administration professionals, our day-to-day responsibilities intersect with many research integrity/compliance issues, and most of us are not even aware of the implications. Whether you work in pre-award, post-award, compliance, conflicts of interest, technology transfer, human research protections, animal welfare, internal audit, etc., irresponsible publication practices can have a major impact on your institution’s ability to gain funding and maintain a successful scientific research enterprise.
Authorship leads to scientific recognition, which leads to finding collaborators, which leads to securing funding… BUT
- What happens when the data are found to have been fabricated, falsified, or plagiarized?
- How would this impact the reputation of and trust in your organization?
- As a grants management person, how would you know if this suspect data was being used in grants applications or progress reports?
- If a paper is corrected or retracted, what is the reporting obligation to the funding agency or the human/animal subject regulators?
- What is the impact on the public – patients, research subjects, donors, potential students/employees?
- What are the critical actions that you can take to ensure that the appropriate tone is set at all organizational levels?
- To examine the role we each play in supporting and maintaining a culture of responsibility – no matter our job title or management level
- To explore the importance of ethical authorship and responsible publication practices and its impact on successful grants management
