Summary

"Here, Horace Freeland Judson carefully details various types of scientific fraud and how they happen: considers science's self-government, including peer review and paper refereeing; and exposes the failures of academic, legal, and government responses. With reason for hope, he also points to how the movement toward Internet publication of papers promises remarkable new checks on fraud."--BOOK JACKET.
