Science and Technology Committee (Commons)
The deadline for written submissions was Thursday 5 October 2017. If you would like to send a late submission please contact Committee staff.
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.
Evidence given by Dr Ivan Oransky, Co-Founder, Retraction Watch, and Distinguished Writer in Residence, New York University Arthur Carter Journalism Institute, and Professor C.K. Gunsalus, Director, US National Center for Professional and Research Ethics (via video-link); Dr Ben Goldacre, DataLab, Department of Primary Care, University of Oxford, Dr Simon Kolstoe, Senior Lecturer and University Ethics Advisor, University of Portsmouth, and Independent chair of Hampshire A (NHS) and MOD research ethics committees, and Síle Lane, Head of International Campaigns and Policy, Sense about Science
