Abstract: Little has been done in terms of teaching or writing about research integrity or research ethics in the counseling field. Because of the continual push for research in counseling to maintain evidence-based practices, there is a need for education in the area of research integrity in order for professionals in the counseling field to conduct responsible research. The Office of Research Integrity’s 9 areas of responsible conduct of research and the American Counseling Association’s code of ethics on research are presented, along with a discussion of ways to teach ethics and provide resources for research integrity in counselor education.
