There are many safeguards in place to prevent scientific and research misconduct in the pursuit of evidence based biomedical and behavioural growth and development. Ethical review and approval of a research study aims to prevent misconduct but also to ensure successful completion of, and the goal of enhanced knowledge (Mateo & Foreman, 2013). The US Office of Research Integrity (ORI) oversees inquiries of scientific misconduct at institutions in the US and supports responsible conduct of research by promoting education, prevention, and regulatory actions (ORI, n.d.).

A case study on the website for the ORI highlighted Mr. Charles A. Downs. This case summarized imposed administrative actions against Mr. Downs from an investigation closed in late 2020. The Respondent was a former Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona Health Sciences Centre. A voluntary settlement agreement was entered into by the ORI and the Respondent after the Respondent neither denied nor admitted findings of the ORI of the Respondent’s engagement in research misconduct. The research in question was supported and funded by the US Public Health Service and was meant to contribute to the National Institute of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translation Sciences (ORI, 2020). Specifically the ORI determined the Respondent intentionally, knowingly and recklessly falsified, and fabricated data in grant applications and in research findings.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
