Federal Government Adopts PIPSC Science Policy
Science Integrity
 
Our member-designed, model scientific integrity policy has been officially accepted by the Federal Government.

By adopting the model policy, federal scientists and (equally important) their departments recognize that scientific integrity is an integral part of their work.

Together with the right of federal scientists to speak freely about science and their research, the adoption of the model policy represents an enormous step forward for science in the public interest and the federal scientists who undertake it.
