The IJHS abides to allegations of misconduct. Investigation into research misconduct is under the purview of the employing institution, often in coordination with the appropriate funding agency. The IJHS is committed to cooperating with investigations and abides by official institutional or governmental rulings with regards to publications affected by research misconduct.
