June 1, 2005

The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) has launched its new web site — http://www.northwestern.edu/research/ori/.

The ORI site can be used as a source for key policy information and will be updated periodically to include current exciting topics related to research compliance, according to Timothy J. Fournier, associate vice president for research integrity.

The site will also include a newsletter as well as comprehensive University training and education information in the near future.

ORI is dedicated to encouraging responsible and appropriate research throughout Northwestern's research community. As part of the Office of Research, ORI's commitment to supporting innovative research is founded on the principles of integrity and honesty, Fournier said.

ORI is involved with several initiatives, including developing The Guide for Research Information — a web-based update to the Research Information Guide (RIG) — and coordinating the University's research-related training, education and communication program.
