NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OFFICE OF INVESTIGATIONS CLOSEOUT MEMORANDUM 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. 1 2 3 NSF OIG Form 2 (11/02)
