NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM Case Number: Al5070045 Page 1of1 A university 1 notified us that it had conducted an inquiry and was proceeding with an investigation. The subject2 allegedly deprived a graduate student3 of appropriate credit by omitting him as an author of a published paper that was related to a patent on which the graduate student was listed as a co-inventor. The university concluded the paper and patent discussed different aspects of the research, and the graduate student's work was not significant!y represented in the paper. We concur with the university. Accordingly, this case is closed. 3- 2 NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
