Research Integrity & Responsible Conduct of Research
Recognizing that responsible conduct of research is essential for promoting public trust in research and in the University, programs and materials that increase the knowledge of and facilitate the practice of responsible research are available to the Suffolk University community. We strongly encourage you to complete the online CITI course on conducting responsible research.
The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is the federal agency charged with oversight for the responsible conduct of research. Information related to research integrity, the responsible conduct of research, and case studies may be found here.
The ORI publishes and periodically updates its comprehensive Introduction to the Responsible Conduct of Research. This office encourages researchers to make a special effort to understand, discuss, and teach others about this initiative, bearing in mind that standards can vary from discipline to discipline.
