As a premier technological university at the cutting edge of education, research, and innovation, the Georgia Institute of Technology is committed to providing leadership in the realm of ethics and the responsible conduct of research (RCR). The purpose of this website is to provide faculty, students, postdoctoral researchers, and other members of the Georgia Tech community with information about RCR policies, training options, and educational resources.
RCR training is central to the Institute’s mission to ensure that students are prepared with the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct themselves professionally and with integrity. The RCR policies on campus are:
The Georgia Tech RCR Compliance Policy applies to certain categories of undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers funded by NIH and NSF. The RCR Compliance Policy also applies to researchers and staff funded by the USDA NIFA program or through a PURA award.
The Georgia Tech RCR Academic Policy for Doctoral Students applies to all doctoral students who have an admit date of Fall 2011 or later. Adhering to this Policy does satisfy the requirements of the RCR Compliance Policy listed above.
The Georgia Tech RCR Academic Policy for Master's Thesis Students applies to all master’s students who register for thesis hours (courses numbered 7000) starting Fall 2014.
