Scientific Integrity Policy from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and National Agency
Jan 11, 2012
NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco released her agency’s new scientific integrity policy. NASA did the same a few days later. Both policies, developed in response to a presidential executive order for federal departments and agencies, allow scientists to talk to the news media about scientific and technical matters, for NASA scientists and about their work without approval from their supervisors or the public affairs office, for NOAA.
