Research integrity and compliance


Temple flagTemple University is dedicated to providing exemplary service, oversight, support, and educational training in matters relating to Research Integrity in the conduct of human, animal, and basic scientific research. In addition, we believe that the strength of compliance at Temple must be rooted in our institutional culture. With this in mind, a TUSM Research Compliance Advisory Committee (RCAC) has been established to bring together members of our faculty, staff, and administration to dialogue and further enhance our ability to meet its compliance responsibilities. The RCAC has three major areas of focus that include:

  • Compliance standards at the central administrative level
  • Research compliance education and communication
  • Infrastructure of departmental functions that will facilitate compliance

It is expected that all researchers in the Temple community carry out their work according to the highest ethical and professional standards.  Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training is a framework for imparting these 'best practice" standards, and is increasingly regarded as a critical component of scholarly and career development.
