ORI Releases Infographics Series

Printer FriendlyPrinter Friendly
The ORI Division of Education and Integrity (DEI) has released 12 new infographics on topics related to the responsible conduct of research (RCR) and the handling of research misconduct.
These infographics are designed to help young as well as experienced researchers to identify with their role in detecting and preventing research misconduct and promoting a culture of research integrity.  They offer specific tips around delicate issues, such as knowing when, and how, to report questionable activity.  
ORI is providing these new infographics in a scalable PDF format to allow universities and other research institutions to download them and print posters for display on campus and in laboratories.  As posters, they may serve as daily reminders about protecting the integrity of science.  
The following ORI infographics are now available:
  • Everyone Plays a Role in Research Integrity;
  • 5 Ways Supervisors Can Promote Research Integrity;
  • Research Trainees: What You Should Know about Research Misconduct;
  • The Research Community Safeguards Scientific Integrity;
  • Possible Red Flags of Research Misconduct;
  • You Suspect Research Misconduct. Now What?;
  • Got Questions? Ask ORI.;
  • What Drives People to Commit Research Misconduct?;
  • Tips for Presenting Scientific Images with Integrity;
  • Write Ethically from Start to Finish; and,
  • RIOs: Reminders for Handling Allegations of Research Misconduct in PHS-Funded Research.
The production of the infographics was a year-long project requiring research and creative development by ORI's Education & Communications Fellows, Penelope Theodorou and Madeline Rooney.
The infographics can be viewed and downloaded from the ORI website: https://ori.hhs.gov/infographics.

We'd love to hang these around campus but would like to be able to edit the bottom middle section to include contact info for our RIO and office. Is it possible to get versions that are editable?

ORI plans to release a version that will allow institutions to include their contact information on the infographics in the very near future.
