VCU is committed to the ethical conduct of research which follows responsible conduct of research best practices.

Research ethics consultation

The VCU CCTR and the Office of Research Integrity and Ethics provide consultation for researchers who have ethical, social or policy questions or concerns related to their research. A consult can be requested at any stage of the research process. Researchers are encouraged to proactively anticipate questions or concerns that may arise as they plan and design their research. The consultations are a collaborative process and, as needed, can involve other individuals or offices. The goal of the consultation is to think through the issue and assist with identifying possible solutions.
