Since the 1980s, well-publicized examples of research misconduct have increased public concerns and stimulated responses from government, universities, and other research institutions. The result has been the formulation of policies and procedures that are designed to investigate, adjudicate, and prevent misconduct in research. Surveys indicate that the prevalence of misconduct may be larger than many researchers would like to acknowledge. Some aspects of these deliberations are controversial and are still in progress. There is now a functioning system in place designed to deal with misconduct allegations, and efforts to prevent misconduct are increasing. This chapter discusses the definition of scientific misconduct as well as policies and procedures for reporting, investigating, and adjudicating misconduct.

Keywords:   research misconduct, public concerns, investigate, adjudicate, prevent misconduct, prevalence of misconduct, misconduct allegations, definition of scientific misconduct
