Using the module
Welcome to Research Integrity! This course is designed for postgraduate, postdoctoral and early career researchers, with a focus on the core responsibilities required throughout the research lifecycle.
If this is the first time you have accessed the Research Integrity course, or if you need a brief reminder, here is some information on how the screens are organised, and some of the tools and features that are used throughout:
The poll questions, used periodically throughout this course, are designed to help you:
If you have any concerns about your situation or find that you have an outlying perspective, you should talk with a supervisor or trusted colleague to get advice.
The application screen allows you to apply the learning from the module to a specific scenario.
Throughout this module, you will see clickable "pods" that contain further information and learning opportunities. The pods in this course contain useful links to further resources and sources of guidance, as well as additional information expanding on the material in the main part of the screen.
"Key points" icons (as above) are used to indicate crucial learning points that are worth remembering.
"Discipline-specific content" icons (as above) are used to indicate where activities include discipline-specific pathways.
At the very end of each module, you have the opportunity to test your learning further with a multiple-choice quiz. This consists of ten questions and can be taken more than once (a new set of questions will appear).
The Research Integrity course is designed to gradually build up your understanding and skills. We recommend that you complete the modules in the order given, but they have been designed so you can access each of them independently according to your own requirements and those of your institution.
