What is Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)?

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) defines Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) as “the practice of scientific investigation with integrity. It involves the awareness and application of established professional norms and ethical principles in the performance of all activities related to scientific research.” Implementing and exercising RCR practices and procedures is crucial to maintaining standards of objectivity and achieving unbiased research results, which in turn safeguards the public’s trust in the research community’s efforts.
