Stanford University expects that every academic program and each research advisor/mentor will do their part to assure that students/trainees receive appropriate guidance in such areas as: research integrity, data acquisition and management, authorship, research collaborations, conflicts of interest, and others as appropriate.
Two of the largest Federal sponsors of research have established regulatory requirements in this regard:
- The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has long required RCR education for anyone funded on their training grants.
- The National Science Foundation (NSF) has established an RCR training requirement for students at any level funded by that agency.
Completion of the following (1) course satisfies the NIH requirement for training in the responsible conduct of research:

Completion of one of the courses listed below satisfies the NSF requirement for training in the responsible conduct of research.
