October 6, 2011

Dean Ortiz encourages all graduate students to complete the online Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) onltraining course offered by MIT. See full letter to graduate students here. Examples questions addressed include the following. Are enhancements to photographic evidence dishonest? Who owns the data I collect during my graduate research? What does the difference between the first and last author on a publication signify? What is a “ghost author”? What are the responsibilities of my faculty mentor? Can I get involved in commercialization activities before I graduate? The link to the RCR course can be found here: http://osp.mit.edu/compliance/rcr
