  • Council of Graduate Schools Project for Scholarly Integrity (CGS PSI)

    (Web Page on Another Site)

    This initiative of the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS), seeks to advance the scope and quality of graduate education in the ethical and responsible conduct of research. Supported by the Office of Research Integrity (ORI), CGS has made awards to seven institutions participating in five projects, each of which is developing and assessing educational models that promote responsible scholarly conduct. This site serves as a tool for sharing ideas developed in these projects and as a clearinghouse of resources relevant to graduate deans and other university administrators, faculty, researchers, and graduate students. The resources on this site address curricular needs across a wide range of topics typically covered in responsible conduct of research (RCR) education and training. The web page also includes a well-designed database of relevant articles on assessment, broad areas of ethics in universities, and topics in RCR and science research ethics.

    As part of the Council of Graduate School’s Project for Scholarly Integrity and internal university initiatives, Penn State University is implementing required graduate student education in the responsible conduct of research (RCR) through a program called Scholarship and Research Integrity (SARI). This program is required of all graduate students beginning with students entering the university in Fall 2009. The SARI program model includes both interdisciplinary and program-specific RCR education and includes two parts. First, during the first year of enrollment, graduate students are required to complete an online RCR training program provided by the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). Next, graduate engage in an additional 5 hours of discussion-based RCR education prior to degree completion. These discussions will encompass both universal and discipline-specific material.
