Mayo Clinic Guidelines
Mayo Clinic considers plagiarism to be scientific misconduct and subject to disciplinary action. Recognizing the negative impact of plagiarism on the careers of employees and students and on the reputation of the institution, the Mayo Clinic Board of Governors approved a plan and process involving education to avoid plagiarism and the use of text matching software to help Mayo authors identify potential problem areas in their manuscripts before submission for publication. An announcement of the plan and available resources was published in The Scope in February 2012.
The Section of Scientific Publications was identified as the Mayo Clinic unit responsible for implementation of the plan and the unit developed a website called Resources for Academic Publishing which includes links to resources and information on Mayo's text-matching software.
Suspected scientific misconduct at Mayo Clinic is governed by the Research Policy Manual which conforms to the Office of Research Integrity process and other federal policy guidelines.
