RCR Forums

Beyond the RCR orientations, all graduate students have to complete additional RCR forums. These are more specialized, smaller and interactive opportunities for you to engage with faculty, librarians, staff and other professionals to explore ethical issues and concerns in your scholarship. The minimum requirements are listed below; you are encouraged to take more:

Master's   1 forum
PhD   4 forums (3 for students matriculating before Fall 2020; see note)
PhD (School of Medicine)   2 forums (1 for students matriculating before Fall 2020)

RCR forums are given numbers on your transcript and can be repeated. Each listed below is worth two hours of RCR credit toward graduation, although a "zero" credit will appear on your transcript as they are not regular, semester-long classes:

  • GS714  Academic Integrity & Misconduct 
  • GS715  Diversity & Inclusion in a Research Environment 
  • GS716  Mentoring & Wellness
  • GS717  Best Practices in Responsible Scholarship
  • BIOTRAIN755 Responsible Scientist TAship (Forum option for OBGE)
  • GS711, GS712 Generic Graduate School RCR credit (old numbers)

Registration for these events will be available at the links below. Do not try to register through DukeHub.

Duke's Advancing Scientific Integrity, Services, and Training (ASIST) office provides RCR training for faculty and staff. Many of those events are also available for graduate student RCR credit as well, as long as you are enrolled (i.e., in classes or continuation) in the term it is offered. These ASIST events typically earn credit for GS714. You can get more information and register below.
