GENERAL INFORMATION: GRD-500 is part of a mandatory Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training as required by the University and Federal funding agencies (e.g. NIH, NSF, DOE, DOD)for all PhD students. Note that this course is combined with AMS-532 in the spring semester.

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR): Journal Club meetings in the Spring will initially be devoted to training in "Responsible Conduct of Research" on topics that include Integrity in Science, Scientific Misconduct, Collaborating and Mentoring, Authorship, Plagiarism, Managing Data, and Journalism and Science. Prior to each meeting, students will view online lectures by Stony Brook faculty and read additional relevant materials which often include case studies. The RCR meetings will be run as small group breakout sessions followed by group discussion. To fully fulfill RCR training, students must also complete a relevant RCR module, and achieve a passing grade of at least 80% on subsequent quizzes, within the web-based Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) located at See Course Schedule at the bottom of the WIKI page ( ) for more information including relevant links, topics, and dates for RCR meetings.
