We are excited to present to you the newest resource that the Society of Research Administrators International adds to the Research Administration community as open source. Next to the monthly newsletter Catalyst and the award winning bi-annual Journal of Research Administration, we have made available a new open source toolkit: the Research Integrity Toolkit. The toolkit was developed last year with funding from ORI IR160026-01-00 - “Supporting responsible research organizations: a framework for engaged research managers and administrators.” We were excited to debut the toolkit at the recent intensive training in Milwaukee, The Intersection of Research Integrity and Compliance in Research Management. The Toolkit is meant to be a living resource – one that will grow and change over time with input from the end-user community of research management professionals.

Supporting Responsible Research Organizations: A framework for engaged research managers and administrators

This joint George Mason University and Society of Research Administrators International (SRAI) project took place on June 22-23, 2017. It targeted an ever-growing global network of managers/administrators and provided research integrity leadership training for administrative leaders. Participants, led by expert faculty members, had opportunity for deep consideration of ethical issues and discussed how best to address these problems. The resulting Research Integrity Toolkit for research managers and administrators will facilitate embedding research integrity into the fabric of day-to-day research operations.
