All persons engaged in research at the Laboratory are responsible for adhering to the highest standards of research integrity. Activities that fall short of the basic ethical principles inherent in the research process undermine the scientific enterprise. Our office is here to assist you in learning about responsible conduct of research and to address questions, concerns, and allegations of possible research misconduct. Under the Laboratory’s research misconduct policy, the Laboratory Deputy Director for Research is the Deciding Official. This policy implements DOE Regulations (952.235-71) and Public Health Service Regulations (42 CFR Part 93) concerning Research Misconduct. The Laboratory policy on scientific and technical publications is found here. Please contact the Research Integrity Officer with any concerns around the integrity or ethics of scientific research conducted at the Lab.
