 Case Number: I-16-0065-O                                                                      Page 1 of 1

                 We received an allegation that a paper1 reporting NSF-supported research did not give proper
         credit to similar previously published work. 2 We determined that adequate credit was given in the
         paper to the previously published research. In addition, all of the grants 3 acknowledged in the paper
         were closed when the work in question was completed, and thus, the research was not actively
         supported by NSF.

                   This case is closed with no further action taken.
