Science and Technology Committee (Commons)
The deadline for written submissions was 10 March 2017. If you would like to send a submission please contact Committee staff.
The Committee is undertaking an inquiry on the issues raised in the POSTnote (PDF 431 KB), and following up the 2011 report (PDF 2.64 MB).
The previous Science and Technology Committee reported on ''Peer review in scientific publications (PDF 2.64 MB)' in 2011, after which Universities UK coordinated the establishment of a 'Research Integrity Concordat'. The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) has recently published a POSTnote (PDF 431 KB) which discusses trends and developments on fraud, misconduct and mistakes in research and the publication of research results. It indicates that the trend in misconduct/mistakes in publishing is still upwards. There has also been a so-called 'crisis in reproducibility' of research.
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
