Responsible Conduct of Research
The TTU Office of Research Integrity works to promote safe, responsible, and productive
research practices. The associated Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training
supplements research training provided by exceptional Texas Tech faculty to raise
trainee awareness of professional standards of research ethics, integrity, and safety,
and of challenges they may face throughout their careers. The Office of Research Integrity
provides RCR education and guidance on effective research practices such as data management,
personnel management, time management, safety in research, intellectual property,
management of conflict of interest, ethical use of humans in research, ethical use
of animals in research, social responsibility for research, effective collaboration,
and research misconduct.
- Data Management: The Proposal and the Process
December 2, 2014
Library Room 153
In the process of writing an application for a grant in recent years researchers may
have needed to include a data management plan (DMP) as part of their grant proposal.
Some funding agencies even require such plans as obligatory for funding, the NSF and
the NIH being the most prominent. While many individuals will include this document
because it is part of their requirements, a strong data management plan is an important
part of the academic process. In this discussion I will go over the important elements
of a data management plan and discuss resources and tools that are available to help
create a great DMP proposal. This talk will benefit faculty new to creating a DMP,
experienced faculty wishing to improve the quality of their DMP, grant support staff
and anyone interested in preparing a project so that it has the most effective impact
in their area of study.

credibility of open access publishers, and the effects of government bounty for publication
in specific journals. Join us for the OVPR Discussion Series on Research Publication
Practices & Responsible Authorship to learn more about proper practices, and tips
and tricks to make sure both you and your research are protected. The format will
consist of presentations by several speakers followed by an open discussion time.
