Emory University history professor Michael Bellesiles has appealed a report from an independent panel that was charged with evaluating his research for his award-winning book on gun culture in America. The University launched an informal investigation into Bellesiles` book in February, after some members of the national academic community accused him of basing his research on fraudulent and long-destroyed records. The results of that internal inquiry led Interim Dean of the College Robert Paul to launch a second external investigation by a panel of "distinguished scholars." Although the panel`s inquiry ended in July, its conclusions have not yet been released.
