Research Integrity Program

The University of Texas at Austin is committed to promoting an environment that fosters research integrity. The foundation of our research enterprise must be based on shared values for conducting the highest quality research, including honesty, accuracy, objectivity, fairness, and stewardship. Without trust that research is conducted according to these core values of science, the research and resulting knowledge are not reliable.

UT’s research integrity program is comprised of two components: Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) and Research Misconduct. The RCR program provides education and resources to promote ethical behavior in the design, conduct and reporting of research. The Research Misconduct program is in place to investigate instances were research integrity is in question.

The Office of Research Support and Compliance will offer Responsible Conduct of Research workshops in Spring 2020.

RCR training is designed with guidance from National Institutes of Health.

Note: RCR workshops are open to researchers across all disciplines, and NIH funding is not a registration requirement.
