    'Fake research' comes under scrutiny

    Source: BBC News

    The scale of "fake research" in the UK appears to have been underestimated, a BBC investigation suggests.

    Spoiler!


    TL;DR Version
    • House of Commons Science and Technology Committee has begun an inquiry into the issue of research misconduct
    • Official resources indicate 30 allegations of research misconduct between 2012 and 2015
    • BBC investigations show at least 300 allegations were reported at 23 research-intensive Research Group universities between 2011 and 2016 among research staff and students
    • Allegations include plagiarism, fabrication, piracy and misconduct; at least 32 research papers and 3 PhD theses were retracted
    • Researchers are increasingly pressured to publish their work and obtain grants; retractions of scientific papers increased about tenfold in past decade
    • Surveys indicate 2% of researchers admit to committing a form of research misconduct
    • Science and Technology Committee is considering a regulatory body to oversee publicly funded research, based on models in US and Denmark

    Question: How can we trust Scientists who are pretty much just inventing studies and throwing around evidence (that may or may not be true ) so that they can stay on the government payroll?
