Responsible Science: Ensuring the Integrity of the Research Process, Volume II
After receiving the final report and such comments from other persons as may seem appropriate, the Office of the Dean shall decide the matter and take such action or make such recommendations as may be deemed fitting, including submission of the final report to the OSI and any other actions required by the PHS Rule. In cases involving another institution, the dean will confer with the chief executive officer of such institution in reaching a final resolution.
An allegation will ordinarily be made by a written statement describing the misconduct in sufficient detail to form the basis of an inquiry.
The Committee on Faculty Conduct, appointed by the dean, shall consist of nine faculty members with overlapping three-year terms.
"Misconduct" or "misconduct in science" means fabrication, plagiarism, or other practices that seriously deviate from those that are commonly accepted within the scientific community for proposing, conducting, or reporting research.
