LaFollette, Marcel C. (2000). "The Evolution of the 'Scientific Misconduct' Issue: An Historical Overview." Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine 224: 211-215.

Excerpts[edit]

  • Scientific misconduct became a controversial public policy issue in the United States in the 1970s and 1980s when several cases of faked and fabricated research were discovered in prestigious academic institutions and resulted in coverage in the general as well as scientific press. This publicity drew Congressional and federal agency attention to what, until then, had been treated primarily as a matter of institutional or laboratory policy. No scientist had ever condoned such behavior, but most preferred to handle the investigation or resolution internally and quietly, regardless of the source of funding or the prestige or standing of the accused.
