Jay D. Amsterdam: The Paroxetine 352 Bipolar Study Ethical Conduct
15. Attachment R (Letter to the Office of Research Integrity – Lawyer’s
On June 13, 2001, Dr. Amsterdam again emailed Dr. Rickels to complain that there had been no resolution of the matter. Dr. Amsterdam wrote: "Before I contact either University officials or the editorial board of [the American Journal of Psychiatry] regarding this egregious behavior, I await your last efforts at resolution of this problem.” (Attachment R)

Subject: Am. J Psych paper
Months of inactivity and languishing over the issue of the upcoming SKB bipolar study, from which I have been excluded as a principal author, have produced no resolution (satisfactory or otherwise).
The article containing the data stolen from me has now appeared in print in the Am. J Psych 158: 906-912, 2001.
I suppose that the inactivity that I have seen indicates that I must now proceed at other levels regarding the "unacademic" and "un-collegial" behavior of Dr. Gyulai. Before I contact either University officials or the editorial board of Am J. Psych regarding this egregious behavior, I await your last efforts at resolution of this problem.
