ACADEMIC INTEGRITY & RESEARCH ETHICS

academic integrity and research compliance

Conducting research with integrity is a matter of excellence. As researchers, writers, scholars, students, producers of creative works, teachers and members of the University of New Mexico community, we are all expected to follow guidelines, policies, and procedures that represent UNM values with regard to responsible conduct of research, professional ethics, and academic integrity.

AIRE provides you with tools and resources to improve your awareness of responsibilities for learning and adhering to university expectations regarding academic integrity, responsible conduct of research, and other scholarly activities.

The Responsible Conduct of Research (or RCR) workshop series, offered by AIRE, is a course of study intended for the researcher to explore research ethics and the impacts it has on science. Federal funding agencies have provided new regulations mandating RCR certification of those who are funded by federal dollars. At UNM we believe the mandate is not as important as it is to participate in RCR training and to discuss real-life issues and dilemmas that we face during our careers.All sessions for this workshop series are on Tuesdays from 4:00 – 5:50 PM in Castetter (Biology) Room 258.  Participants who attend five of the six sessions may be eligible to receive a certificate of completion for RCR training from the AIRE office. Certificates are valid for four years. Additionally, students can receive a 1 hour credit in this course; to do so, please register for either Research Ethics – Biol 402 sec 047 CRN 50077 (for undergraduates) or Biol 502 sec 047 CRN 50809 (for graduate students).  A Dropbox will be set up for this course containing materials, reading, and other resources.  Contact Dr. Gannon for further information.

Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about academic integrity or research ethics. Thank you for your commitment not just to doing research, but to doing research well. Workshop evaluation
