On January 4, 2010, BMCC and CUNY instituted a comprehensive plan requiring all student researchers to receive training in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). Such training is now mandatory and available as follows:

A. On-line Modules. All trainees must complete one of the RCR courses appropriate to their discipline through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). The courses may be accessed through the CUNY Research website.

The available courses include:

  • RCR in Biomedical research
  • RCR in Social and Behavioral Science research
  • RCR in Physical Science research
  • RCR in Humanities research
  • RCR in Engineering research

Each trainee must have completed the appropriate on-line training module within six (6) weeks of being supported by, or performing research on a sponsored project. A certificate of completion should be printed and a copy must be provided to your Principal Investigator (PI)/Project Director (PD).

B.  RCR Workshops – will be offered at BMCC. The first workshop will be offered on Wednesday, April 28th at 2:00 PM in room  S370). These workshops must be completed within twelve (12) months of on-line training.

C. Individual Training: All Principal Investigators (PI) or Project Directors (PD) are responsible for overseeing the training of student researchers in RCR topics specific to their research setting. This training will consist of interactive discussions during group meetings and/or one-on-one discussions on the topic between the PI/PD and the trainee.

Please continue to monitor the BMCC website for future RCR workshops announcements and other information regarding the RCR training plan.

Any questions regarding the University’s plan on RCR training should be addressed to Borough of Manhattan Community College’s Research Integrity Officer, Professor Diane Simmons at: DSimmons@BMCC.CUNY.EDU.
