AbstractThis web article describes a series of nine role-play scenarios developed through a National Science Foundation Grant at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign that focus on central topics in responsible conduct of research. These scenarios are meant to be acted out by students in a RCR workshop or course, and then discussed in a group setting. The page includes links to the scripts of all nine different case studies, that cover the topics of authorship, conflict of interest, peer review, interpersonal conflicts in mentoring, data management and whistle-blowing, professional relationships and whistle-blowing, and compliance with regulations on human participants, animal subjects, and hazardous materials.
