AbstractThis article describes how the Division of Investigative Oversight within the U.S. Office of Research Integrity (ORI) works when conducting research into alleged cases of research misconduct. Although ORI findings rely primarily on the scope and quality of the institution's analyses and determinations, ORI often has been able to strengthen the original findings by employing a variety of analytical methods, often computer based. Although ORI does not conduct inquiries or investigations, it has broad authority to provide assistance to institutions at all stages of their reviews of allegations. This assistance can range from providing advice on best practices, to legal assistance, to suggestions for how best to investigate specific allegations.
