CDC Guidance on Scientific Integrity

This document provides an overarching summary of the policies, activities, and guiding principles that exist within Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (CDC/ATSDR–henceforth referred to as CDC) in support of four key areas of scientific integrity: (1) foundations of scientific integrity in government, (2) public communications, (3) use of federal advisory committees, and (4) professional development of government scientists and engineers. The CDC has numerous policies on various aspects of scientific integrity; this guide allows CDC scientists, and those who support its scientific endeavors, to easily locate the appropriate policies that support the agency’s principles for scientific integrity.
