Online education in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), which includes research misconduct as well as other topics such as human research protections, laboratory animal welfare, publication practices, and mentor-trainee relationships is available for faculty, staff and students via the CITI training program.
The library regularly offers courses on plagiarism and data management that qualify for one hour of RCR advanced training credit. Click here to see the course schedule and register.
The Brown Bag Seminar Series is an opportunity for the Clemson University community to better understand research integrity and research compliance related topics.

"Science Integrity, Scientific Misconduct, and Federal Policy", presenter Dr. Gary Machlis, professor of Environmental Sustainability, joined the faculty in 2013. He is also Science Advisor to the Director of the National Park Service, and in that capacity serves as the Science Integrity Officer for the National Park Service, handling all cases concerning scientific misconduct for the agency. Dr. Machlis has a Ph.D. in human ecology from Yale University, and in 2010 was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Under President Obama's Executive Order on scientific integrity, federal agencies have developed specific policies regarding science integrity and scientific misconduct. These policies have implications for universities conducting federally-sponsored research. The presentation focuses on the newly-established policies of the US Department of the Interior (which includes the National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, and the US Geological Survey) as an example of the wider effort to promote science integrity and respond to scientific misconduct.

“The 3 R’s of Animal Welfare in Research Literature: How to Perform a Literature Search for your Upcoming AUP”
One of the IACUC requirements for research that uses vertebrate animals as test subjects is to perform a literature search to facilitate the 3 R’s of the Animal Welfare Act: Replacement, reduction, and refinement. In this brown bag lunch, I will go over several tips and tricks to help you perform these searches yourself and better understand this aspect of research compliance.
