Date: September 5, 2012
Author: Dr. Jim Woodgett Ph.D.
QUOTE: The scientific community must be diligent in highlighting abuses, develop greater transparency and accessibility for its work, police research more effectively and exemplify laudable behaviour. This includes encouraging more open debate about misconduct and malpractice, exposing our dirty laundry and welcoming external examination....Peer pressure is a powerful tool — but only if peers are aware of infractions and bad practice.
