This conference is an initiative to support the positions of RIO, RIO Support, and RCR Educators to better understand plagiarism from a cultural perspective, while discovering innovative approaches for examining and handling allegations of plagiarism in research both proactively and reactively. The goal of the conference is to provide an interactive discussion that will expand the understanding of cultural variables which may contribute to plagiarism in research and supply practical tools and resources in the handling of plagiarism allegations for Research Integrity Officers. The conference is being held through the support of an Office of Research Integrity (ORI) grant award (#ORIIR170031-01-00).
There is no cost to attend the conference; registration is FREE.

The purpose of this two-day train-the-trainers workshop is to help new or inexperienced Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) instructors to develop and implement best practices in RCR instruction. The course presenters are experienced RCR instructors and researchers who will present distinct topics, lead active discussions and exercises, and identify useful resources (case studies, short writing assignments, etc.) for a foundational understanding of RCR and the tools needed for successful RCR instruction. Particular focus will be on active learning approaches most effective for adult learners. Four topic sessions (data; misconduct; collaboration; and publication and authorship) will demonstrate effective teaching methods and illustrate positive and negative practices in the conduct of research. In addition, three sessions (pedagogy, assessment, and RCR program management) will introduce structural, practical, tactical, and strategic aspects of RCR instruction.

The goal of the Quest for Research Excellence conference series is to fuel knowledge sharing among all the parties involved in promoting the responsible conduct of research and scientific integrity, from scientists to educators, administrators, government officials, journal editors, science publishers and attorneys. True to this ambition, the theme of the 2017 conference is “breaking down the silos”. The conference will focus on five topics from the perspectives of various stakeholders. These topics include research misconduct, the responsible conduct of research, the legal implications of research misconduct, scientific publications and open science. Each of these topics will be the focus of a 90-minute plenary session led by a panel of world-renowned experts. Breakout sessions will give participants an opportunity to discuss cross-cutting topics in small interdisciplinary groups.
