Today members of the research community are reminded to complete the WVU Survey of Organizational Research Climate (SOURCE). The SOURCE is a validated instrument specifically designed to measure the climate of research integrity in academic organizations. Questions seek respondent perceptions regarding responsible conduct of research (RCR) resources, norms, mentoring, and other factors known to affect the climate of research integrity. These data will help WVU identify bright spots, develop programming, and respond to concerns. On Wednesday morning, members of the research community received an email from ethicsctr@illinois.edu with an invitation and link to the survey.
