Jump to navigation Jump to search

Scientific misconduct is the violation of the standard codes of scholarly conduct and ethical behavior in the publication of professional scientific research. A Lancet review on Handling of Scientific Misconduct in Scandinavian countries gave examples of policy definitions. In Denmark, scientific misconduct is defined as "intention[al] or gross negligence leading to fabrication of the scientific message or a false credit or emphasis given to a scientist", and in Sweden as "intention[al] distortion of the research process by fabrication of data, text, hypothesis, or methods from another researcher's manuscript form or publication; or distortion of the research process in other ways."[1][2]

A 2009 systematic review and meta-analysis of survey data found that about 2% of scientists admitted to falsifying, fabricating, or modifying data at least once.[3]

Biomedical sciences[edit]

  • Anna Ahimastos-Lamberti (Australia), a former medical researcher, admitted to fabricating scientific results published in numerous major international medical journals.[4] As a result, two journal articles about a three-year clinical trial involving a medication used to treat hypertension were retracted.[5][6]
  • Bharat Aggarwal (US), a former Ransom Horne, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Cancer Research at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center,[7] resigned his position after fraud was discovered in 65 papers published by him in the area of curcumin as a treatment for cancer.[8] Aggarwal has had 28 of his publications retracted.[9]
  • Elias Alsabti (Iraq, US), was a medical practitioner who posed as a biomedical researcher. He plagiarized as many as 60 papers in the field of cancer research, many with non-existent co-authors.[10][11][12]
  • Piero Anversa (US, Italy) and Annarosa Leri (US, Italy), collaborators and former researchers at Harvard University, were found in a 2014 investigation to have "manipulated and falsified" data in their research on endogenous cardiac stem cells, and to have included "false scientific information" in grant applications.[13] Anversa and Leri lost a lawsuit they brought against Harvard that claimed the investigation had damaged their reputations.[14] Anversa and Leri have one retracted and eight corrected publications.[15] In October 2018, Harvard University and Brigham and Women's Hospital called for an additional 31 paper retractions after many failed replications of their work.[16]
  • Edward Awh and graduate student David Anderson (US), formerly of the University of Oregon, retracted nine of their publications due to data fabrication.[17][18] This included an action identified by The Scientist (magazine) as a Top 10 Retraction of 2015.[19]

  • Philippe Bois (US), a former postdoctoral fellow in biochemistry at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was found by the Office of Research Integrity to have used misleading data for one image in a 2005 Journal of Cell Biology paper and completely faked another image in a Molecular and Cellular Biology article published the same year. The JCB paper was retracted later in May 2007 and the MCB paper was corrected.[23]
  • Joachim Boldt (Germany), an anesthesiologist formerly based at the Justus Liebig University Giessen, was stripped of his professorship and criminally investigated for forgery in his research studies.[24] Boldt has had 96 of his publications retracted.[25]
  • C. David Bridges (US), a researcher at Purdue University and formerly at Baylor College of Medicine, was found by a NIH investigation panel to have stolen ideas from a rival's manuscript that Bridges had been asked to review, and used that information to produce and publish his own research.[26][27] The investigating panel described Bridges' conduct as "an egregious misconduct of science that undermines the entire concept and practice of scientific experimentation and ethical responsibility,"[28] with NIH later stripping Bridges' of his funding.[29]
  • Silvia Bulfone-Paus (Germany, UK), an immunologist at the Research Center Borstel and the University of Manchester, has had 13 of her publications retracted following investigations of alleged scientific misconduct involving image manipulation.[30][31]
  • Ranjit Chandra (Canada), former nutrition researcher at Memorial University of Newfoundland and self-proclaimed "father of nutritional immunology,"[32] was in 2015 stripped of his Order of Canada membership following accusations of scientific wrongdoing in his research.[33] In 2015 Chandra lost a $132 million case against the CBC, which in 2006 presented a documentary in which 10 of Chandra's publications were identified as “fraudulent or highly suspicious;”[34] Chandra was ordered to pay the CBC $1.6 million to cover the defendant's legal fees.[35] At least four of Chandra's publications have been retracted.[36]

  • Carlo M. Croce (US), an oncologist and professor of medicine at Ohio State University, has been the subject of several allegations of scientific misconduct, including data falsification, and related institutional investigations.[39][40][41] Croce, who has filed lawsuits against critics,[42] including a defamation lawsuit against David Sanders (biologist) of Purdue University,[43] has had eight of his publications retracted.[44]
  • John Darsee (US), a cardiologist formerly based at Harvard University, fabricated data in published research articles and more than 100 abstracts and book chapters.[45][46] In 1983 Darsee was disbarred for ten years by the US National Institutes of Health.[47] Darsee has had at least 17 of his publications retracted.[48]
  • Dipak Das (US), former director of the Cardiovascular Research Center at the University of Connecticut Health Center, was found in a University investigation to be guilty of 145 counts of fabrication or falsification of research data.[49] Das has had 20 of his publications retracted.[50]

  • Yoshitaka Fujii (Japan), an anesthesiologist, was found to have fabricated data in at least 183 scientific papers, setting what is believed to be a record for the number of papers by a single author requiring retractions. A committee reviewing 212 papers published by Fujii over a span of 20 years found that 126 were entirely fabricated, with no scientific work done. Only 3 were found to be valid. He was also found to have forged the signatures of scientists he listed as co-authors without their knowledge.[63][64][65]
  • Roxana Gonzalez (US), former doctoral student in the laboratory of Jennifer Lerner at Carnegie Mellon University, falsified data in research projects supported by the US National Institutes of Health that "affected three published papers, two manuscripts, and one review article."[66][67][68]

  • Researchers at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital retracted a 2012 paper published in Surgery in 2016 after an internal investigation determined that an image used in the paper was fabricated. The investigation was sparked by other scientists who questioned the paper’s claim to have presented the molecular underpinnings of how a form of curcumin could reduce the growth of neuroblastoma.[186] The official retraction stated, “The irregularities in Figure 3E have been investigated by the co-authors and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the investigation concluded that the image was fabricated. We therefore retract the publication.”[187]


  • Claudio Airoldi (Brazil), former professor at the University of Campinas, and Denis de Jesus Lima Guerra (Brazil), former professor at the Federal University of Mato Grosso, have had 13 of their papers retracted[188] in what was reported as the biggest case of scientific fraud in Brazil.[189]
  • Henk Buck (Netherlands), former professor of Physical Organic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry at the Eindhoven University of Technology, was directly involved in The Buck-Goudsmit controversy, in which a potential method to inhibit HIV-1 replication was ultimately shown to be based on flawed research.[190][191]

  • H. Zhong, T. Liu, and their colleagues (China) at Jinggangshan University have retracted at least 70 papers published in Acta Crystallographica[198][199] following analyses that revealed the organic structures claimed in these papers to be impossible or implausible; the supporting data appeared to have been taken from valid structures that had then been altered by substituting atoms.[200][201]
  • Guido Zadel (Germany), published an article with the title "Enantioselective Reactions in a Static Magnetic Field" in 1994.[202] His experiments had been manipulated, which led to the retraction of the respective paper and the final loss of his doctoral degree in 2004.[203] The German version of the article is still accessible at Angew. Chem. in 2018 for $59 without any obvious retraction note.[204]

Computer science and mathematics[edit]

  • Ioan Mang (Romania), a computer scientist at the University of Oradea, plagiarized a paper by cryptographer Eli Biham,[205] Dean of the Computer Science Department of Technion, Haifa, Israel. He was accused of extensive plagiarism in at least eight of his academic papers.[206][207][208][209]
