Responsible Conduct of Research Training Requirement

In response to the National Science Foundation (NSF) mandate that all persons supported by NSF funding (faculty, researchers, postdoctoral researchers and undergraduate and graduate students) receive Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training in order to conduct research, the OAGSR has registered with the Center on Materials and Devices for Information Technology Research (CMDITR) for access to its website for Ethics CORE Collaborative Online Resource Environment, Ethics and Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Resources. TCNJ is subject to review by NSF and must verify that all persons supported by NSF to conduct research have received RCR training. The CMDITR website will provide the training and testing for all persons affiliated with TCNJ research projects.  This service is not limited only to those with NSF support.


To register, please visit the RCR Tutorial page, select the “My Hub” tab to create a new account and complete the New User Registration Form. You must create an account under an existing registered group so please select The College of New Jersey as your affiliated group. You must complete the RCR modules and accompanying testing before you engage in any research activities funded by NSF.


If you have any questions, please contact Kortnay Woods at or extension 3255.
