Responsible Conduct of Research

Texas Tech University 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.
