Fraudulent Science Is on the Rise (Pharmalot blog)
“Medical fraud has become more noticeable in recent years as more studies are retracted all the time,” blogger Ed Silverman writes. A new review of peer-reviewed journals finds the percentage of studies withdrawn because of fraud or suspected fraud has exploded. In 1976, there were fewer than 10 fraud retractions for every 1 million studies published, compared with 96 retractions per million in 2007. “This indicates a need for a better reporting system for retractions by journals, although there is also the possibility that more journals have become more sensitive to retraction issues recently,” Nicholas Steneck, director of the research ethics program at the University of Michigan, adds.
