The CR Times returns after the summer break. The theme of this issue is change: One actual and one proposed.
The actual change is that we will no longer be using CR Times feature articles and multiple choice questions to recertify researchers. (See: “Things to Know”)
The proposed change is in Federal regulations: OHRP recently released a Notice of Proposed Rule Making to modify the so-called Common Rule. (See this month’s “Feature Article”)
Other changes are coming. The editor and staff of the CR Times will do their best to keep you informed.
