NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: A12010002 Page 1 of 1 We assessed an allegation of research misconduct in a publication 1 that acknowledged NSF support, and we assessed the University's 2 inquiry report on the matter. We concur with the report conclusion that the publication does not present results of original research, and that allegations of falsification are more accurately disagreements with methodology, and disagreements in interpretation or criticism. We find no substance to allegations of falsification. Accordingly, this case is closed. NSF O IG Form 2 ( 11 /02)
