AbstractThe authors looked at research misconduct cases submitted to the U.S. Office of Research Integrity to explore the role of the mentor in the cases of trainee research misconduct.They focused on three behaviors they believed mentors should focus on with their trainees, namely to review source data, to teach them about research standards, and to minimize stressful work situations. The authors found that about three fourths of the mentors had not reviewed source data and two-thirds had not set standards. Though their was little evidence of the mentors causing stress, about half of the convicted trainees seemed to be in overly stressful work situations.
