Description Best Practices for Publishing Your Research is a series of seven teaching modules designed to promote best practices in publication ethics for life scientists and biomedical engineers who publish research papers. Topics include: Preparing Text and Avoiding Plagiarism, Overlapping Publications, Authorship, Data Management and Integrity, Data Fabrication and Falsification, Conflicts of Interest, and Animal and Human Studies Considerations. All materials in the modules have been peer-reviewed by both the project Advisory Board and a panel of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) course instructors. Modules also were field-tested with graduate students in physiology. Each module includes an Instructor Guide (with student handouts), an editable PPT, and a video presentation of the module lecture. The goal of each module is for students to not only understand professional standards of practice in research manuscript development but also to be able to apply these standards to their own work AND to be prepared to teach them to their own students in the future. Each module employs student-centered learning strategies that engage students across the spectrum of Bloom’s taxonomy. Each module provides instructors with both a Learning Cycle model for use and a Homework/Interactive Lecture/Small Group Activities approach. Quizzes and grading rubrics are available to instructors on request. The modules were developed with support from the NSF (#SES -1238368) and in collaboration with the American Physiological Society (APS), Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), and Society for Biological Engineering (SBE). The modules represent the views of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of NSF, APS, BMES, or SBE. The information presented is designed to represent a summary of best practices and advice at the time of publication. They are not meant to serve as legal advice or publisher policy and do not in any way guarantee protection from professional ethics charges.
