    The Project for Scholarly Integrity (PSI), an effort to advance the state of research and scholarly integrity in graduate schools, generated data from two surveys fielded at six institutions. The PSI Dashboard allows users to select topics of interest and filter the results by any one of 15 fields/disciplines.
    The Ph.D. Completion Project is a CGS grant-funded (Pfizer Inc. and the Ford Foundation) project that addresses the issues surrounding Ph.D. completion and attrition. In the first phase of the project 30 partner institutions provided baseline completion and attrition data for students entering 330 Ph.D. programs in 62 disciplines for the period 1992-93 through 2003-04. Aggregate completion and attrition rates by broad field and discipline as well as completion rates by broad field and student demographic characteristics are presented in a series of tables.
