Case 22. Disclosure of Sources of Grant Funds

Situation

Corine Donnelly wants to submit for journal publication a paper on predictors of successful job placement based on her three-month contract with Backtowork, Inc. She asks representatives of Backtowork, Inc., for permission to publish the paper. They agree but ask her not to identify the organization as the source of her support.

Questions

  1. Should Donnelly submit the paper without revealing her source of financial support?
  2. If there are exceptions to revealing the source of financial support of one's work, what principles guide this decision?
