Scientific Self-Regulation: A Brief Primer for Research Administrators
Atkinson, Timothy N.
Research Management Review, v14 n2 p23-28 Spr 2005
The National Academies of Science recently recommended a battery of guidelines for Academe to create an "environment" conducive to the responsible conduct of research. These guidelines affect the research administration field as a whole, as research administrators will be expected to assist in these changes. Research administrators, however, should consider their role in scientific self-regulation as they assist in environmental changes. Environmental changes take decidedly longer to achieve than a one-hour meeting or one-hour training session covering the definitions of scientific misconduct. It is time to move away from simple awareness training and discover new ways of collaborating with faculty to manage responsible conduct in research.
