Scholarly Culture and Accountability Plan (SCAP)

Duke Head and Neck Surgery & Communication Sciences has prepared a Science Culture & Accountability Plan following the guidelines provided.

This plan embraces Best Practices in Research and details three levels of responsibility for promoting a culture that encourages responsible data management and produces data of the highest integrity – individual, division and department – and reflects these important principles:

  • An environment where scientific integrity is paramount
  • High-quality, reproducible data and results
  • Constructive critiques of research
  • Open discussions regarding research conduct or integrity

Every member of HNS&CS – faculty, trainees, staff and administrators – is expected to exemplify these values. The department has a shared commitment to the highest standards of science culture and accountability.
