It is important to foster integrity in the research community. Knowledge that emerges from research is collective and rooted in core values of integrity such as accountability, honesty, fairness, objectivity and openness. Everyone involved in research should exemplify these values throughout the research process, so researchers must understand the dynamics that support or pervert practices that typify integrity in research.
ORI has developed a series of infographics addressing the Responsible Conduct of Research and the handling of research misconduct. We hope RCR instructors and RIO’s will adopt the materials for their educational efforts. With the success of these infographics, we have expanded the content with an additional six. Each month from September 2018 – February 2019, ORI will focus on one topic area in research integrity with an infographic and corresponding video. The comment section will help us understand how the expanded material is used.

The posters may serve as daily reminders about the responsible conduct of research (RCR) and how to navigate through issues related to research misconduct. Look for monthly releases on these topics:
- Authorship Practices to Avoid Conflicts
- 5 Qualities of Good Research Mentors
- Applying for a Grant? DON’T TAKE SHORTCUTS
- It’s a Slippery Slope to Research Misconduct
- You’ve Been Accused of Research Misconduct – Now What?
- Tips for Avoiding Plagiarism
At some point in the future, could you please update the infographics to provide a place (perhaps below the main poster) for institutions to insert the contact information and/or website for the RIO/research compliance office? Thank you!
Hi Katie. If you open the file in Adobe Acrobat DC, you should be able to edit by clicking the EDIT tab to the right, this function will allow for you to include your institutions information in a font, style or color of your choosing. I hope this information helps.
Hi! It would be great if these infographics were made available as image files, not just PDFs, to facilitate sharing on social media.
Here are a few simple steps to help you save the PDF files as an image. In Adobe Acrobat DC go to File - Export To - Image (JPEG, JPEG2000, TIFF, PNG). Hope this information helps.
I think these are a great idea. We are planning to frame them and place them in each lab hallway. Can you tell me when the October poster will be released and where I can find future posters on the website?
Hi. All of our new infographics are posted to our website under the RCR Resources tab.
