Interactive Movie on Research Misconduct from ORI

The Department of Health and Human Services Office of Research Integrity offers an interactive movie, The Lab: Avoiding Research Misconduct, that allows you to play the roles of four lead characters making decisions about integrity in research: a grad student, a postdoc, a principal investigator, and a research integrity officer. You make choices while playing the characters, changing the outcome to either end well or badly.

The video simulation addresses Responsible Conduct of Research topics such as avoiding research misconduct, mentorship responsibilities, handling of data, responsible authorship, and questionable research practices.

The movie requires a web browser, speakers or headphones, and Adobe Flash Player 10+.
