ORI: To Release Interactive Video on Research Integrity

Jan 6, 2011 at 12:00am

A video simulation on research integrity, entitled "The Lab" will be released soon on the ORI web site and as a DVD. In the simulation, research misconduct causes a noted lab to lose funding, creates bad publicity to the university, and eventually causes the withdrawal of a multi-million dollar endowment.  In "The Lab," viewers have the opportunity to undo the damage by assuming the roles of a graduate student, post doc, principal investigator, and a research integrity officer and make decisions to prevent misconduct from occurring unnoticed.  The interactive video addresses the handling of misconduct, data management, authorship, mentoring, work-life balance, and other issues that today's researchers face.
