Evaluating the Impact on Whistleblowers Who Report Research Misconduct

This study will interview whistleblowers in closed research misconduct cases to determine what happened to them prior to, during, and after the investigative process ended.  This study will build on another study, Consequences of Whistleblowing for the Whistleblower in Misconduct in Science Cases [PDF], that was completed in 1995. This study is expected to be completed in 2009.
