ORI seeking educational program proposals

The Office for Research Integrity is seeking proposals for its Responsible Conduct Of Research Education Resource Development Program. Educational programs must address one of nine core instruction areas:

  • data acquisition, retention, storage, custody, sharing, ownership, interpretation, and reporting;
  • mentor/trainee relationships;
  • collaborative science;
  • peer review process;
  • publication practices and responsible authorship;
  • research misconduct;
  • conflicts of interest;
  • human subjects;
  • animal subjects.

Proposals will be evaluated based on criteria such as how well the topic is covered, whether the product can engage the user is active learning/participation, whether appropriate technology is being utilized, and how effective the product is likely to be, i.e., whether the instructional materials will improve the skills and competencies of the target audience.

The deadline for proposals is Feb. 27, 2004. For more information, visit the ORI web site at www.ori.hhs.gov.
