Abstract: This effort is consistent with the directive to ORI to ‘‘focus more on preventing misconduct and promoting research integrity’’ (Federal Register: May 12, 2000, Volume 65, Number 93). Study results will be used to promote mentoring best practices, in particular for the responsible conduct of research, by raising awareness of the role of faculty members in developing young scientists, promoting discussion in the scientific community, and informing institutions on where and how to focus resources from the unique perspective of both faculty and doctoral student. To gather information to promote ORI’s objectives, this study will use in-depth personal interviews with 100 faculty who participated in the ORI Faculty Survey and agreed to be re-contacted and 100 matched doctoral students who have graduated in the last five years. These one-time interviews will be used to find out how faculty and their students view the training and education of responsible researchers. Interviews with matched faculty/ doctoral student pairs will provide a unique opportunity to compare these two perspectives and will strengthen and elaborate on the ORI Faculty Survey results.
