    Government agencies and departments have set standards for the scientific research that is conducted or referenced by their employees.  These standards generally require that the scientists conducting the research be appropriately qualified; that the research is conducted fairly and completely without any alterations of methodology or data that might alter the outcomes in favor of a certain position; that research be subjected to peer review; and that any opinion stated by the researcher be clearly stated as opinion.  The policies of these institutions further require openness and honesty from the researcher in submitting their work to the public, the government, the media, etc.  Moreover, any government employee or politician who hires a scientist to conduct research or cites existing research must demonstrate the validity of the research according to the institution’s standards.
