Responsible conduct of research

Adherence to responsible conduct of research (RCR) enables ethically acceptable research practices and reliability of the research results. RCR is integral part of all phases of a research project.

Tampere higher education community is committed to by Finnish National Board on Research Integrity’s (TENK) guideline Responsible Conduct of Research and Procedures for Handling Allegations of Misconduct in Finland (pdf, TENK 2012).

Each individual researcher and member of a research group is primarily responsible for adhering to the principles of RCR, but part of responsibility also rests on the whole research community (i.e. supervisor, PI, research group, organisation).
