Respondents from 240 departments/programs were typically department chairs or directors of graduate study. In addition to reporting on program-level policies and activities, respondents were asked to identify how faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows were exposed to research and scholarly integrity topics. Select one of the following topics to explore the results of the inventory:
