More tales of the NSF OIG

 The latest Semiannual Report to Congress from the Office of the Inspector General at the National Science Foundation contains discussion of a variety of research misconduct investigations. They include falsification of data and instances of plagiarism. In two instances, investigators allowed their collaborators to prepare the bulk of the proposal and didn't review it before submission. Moral of the story: Be sure to carefully review anything that's got your name on it.
