In her presentation, Ms. Lerner covered topics such as the Fraud Triangle, the NSF’s RCR training policy, best practices for RCR training, RCR training and mentoring, and best practices for research misconduct investigations. She ended the very informative presentation with a slide containing the NSF OIG’s favorite plagiarism excuses.
