The Politics of Research Misconduct: Congressional Oversight, Universities, and Science.
Lafollette, Marcel C.
Journal of Higher Education, v65 n3 p261-85 May-Jun 1994

Because scientists and universities have failed to respond promptly to calls for self-regulation, Congress has imposed formal regulations and favors increased scrutiny of research and a reassessment of university-government-science relations.
