Misconduct in Science

Scientific misconduct in science is defined as fabrication, plagiarism, or other practices that seriously deviate from those that are commonly accepted within the scientific community for proposing, conducting or reporting research.  Each institution which receives or applies for a research, research training or research related grant or cooperative agreement under the PHS Act must submit an annual assurance (42 CFR 50, Subpart A).  Institutional procedures are in place for dealing with allegations of misconduct.
