Science Fraud

A recent analysis of professional misconduct concluded that male scientists were more likely to commit fraud than females. The study found that overall, 65% of the fraud cases were committed by males. Among academic ranks, 88% of faculty members who committed misconduct were male, and the percentage varies with academic rank: up to 69% of postdoctoral fellows, down to 58% of students, and 43% of other research personnel. (Find out more about the study here.) So, ‘fess up—are YOU guilty?

Have you ever fudged your data?

Absolutely not!
Yes, but I like to call it “creative interpretation”.
Yes, who doesn’t?
