Québec’s Chief Scientist and the Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ) are pleased to present a new tool for members of the research community to raise awareness of the responsible conduct of research. The tool aims to foster awareness of best practices for the responsible conduct of research among students and researchers through activities focused on decision making in real research contexts. Easily adaptable to different research contexts, this flexible tool may be used by modules or activities to complement other training initiatives or to facilitate reflection and discussion as part of courses and between research team members. This tool may not be used for commercial purposes. Once completed, it will be made up of three independent modules on various themes. The first module looks at the responsible dissemination of research results.
To obtain a certificate of completion for the modules, communicate with the ethics and legal affairs office, before starting the activities.
To transmit any commentary on the awareness tool, communicate with the ethics and legal affairs office.
