Science Culture and Accountability Plan

Duke University is committed to maintaining the highest quality and integrity of all its scientific enterprise. Because of this commitment, the School of Medicine (SOM) is required to have mechanisms to guarantee the responsible management and critical review of scientific data. The  SOM has created the Advancing Scientific Integrity, Services and Training (ASIST) office to support individual departments in adopting and implementing policies and procedures related to best practices for scientific accountability and integrity. The Department of Population Health  Sciences (DPHS) is committed to ensuring that departmental policies and procedures are in place to maintain the highest level of professional conduct‐‐to promote a culture in which scientific results are critically reviewed, accountability for data integrity is clearly delineated,  concerns can be brought forth without hesitation, and that there are mechanisms by which these concerns can be addressed fairly and expeditiously.
