Misconduct in science – An array of errors


Investigations into a case of alleged scientific misconduct have revealed numerous holes in the oversight of science and scientific publishing

An excellent article that highlights the imperfections in science. Like all other fields of human inquiry, science is subject to human error and/or dishonesty. The GP questions that should be raised include whether we have too much faith in the findings of science and the role of ethical/value systems in scientific inquiry.

Very good as a fresh example in science and tech essays.
