Just-in-Time Review System

We are delighted to announce a new resource available to BIO REU students! The Just-in-Time review system provides REU students quick turn around review, by graduate students, of their research abstracts, papers, poster presentations and other materials associated with their research. By providing another "set of eyes" the Just-in-Time review system gives not only editorial and content feedback to REU students but also provides real-time chat sessions for REU students to discuss their review with the graduate assistant.

One-stop research ethics shop is open for business

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) has emerged as the latest catchphrase to burden US researchers who are already up to their ears in funding agency bureaucracy. Now a $1.5 million initiative funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) is promising to help them out. The Ethics CORE web site has had a soft launch over the past year, quietly building up to 1638 registered users on a beta version of its web site, but sent out an official launch announcement late on 20 September.
