Responsible Conduct of Research Training and Trust Between Research Postgraduate Students and Supervisors Academic Article uri icon


  • Does responsible conduct of research (RCR) training improve levels of trust between researchers? Using data gathered as part of a survey on the attitudes of master's and doctoral-level students toward RCR, we found that RCR training correlated with a weakened beliefs of students toward their supervisors' ethicality but a stronger belief in the ethicality of their peers. We believe that these findings point to new avenues of research on trust in the academic setting and to needs for curriculum changes in RCR training. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
