The Division of Scholarly Integrity and Research Compliance’s Investigator Series provides researchers with a peer-to-peer forum to share ethical considerations that they make during the design, conduct and dissemination of their research. This style of learning opens the door to new perspectives and meaningful conversations in the pursuit of research excellence.
Investigator Series webinars are typically 1-hour and are open to all Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff. All Investigator Series presentations provide in-person Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training credit hours towards the National Institutes of Health (NIH) 8-hour in-person RCR training requirement.
Previous Investigator Series presentations can be found on the Investigator Series video page. NOTE: Viewing previously recorded Investigator Series presentations does not provide credit hours towards the NIH’s in-person RCR training requirement.

Research Integrity and Scholarly Excellence (RISE) Lecture Series
Each semester, the Division of Scholarly Integrity and Research Compliance invites a notable scholar or subject matter expert to share their ideas on ethical issues that are shaping the future of scholarship and the research enterprise. The goal of this lecture series is to foster ethical scholarship, explore a diversity of perspectives about the roles and responsibilities of scholars and researchers, and reflect on the ethical impact of our work in the modern world.
The fall 2023 and spring 2024 lectures will be posted when they become available.
