Scope of the inquiry

This inquiry looks at trends and developments in fraud, misconduct and mistakes in research and the publication of research results. Research by Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology indicates the trend in misconduct/mistakes in publishing is still upwards. There has also been a so-called 'crisis in reproducibility' of research.

The Committee continues the previous Committee's inquiry, taking forward the evidence it had received before the General Election.
