sawyl: (A self portrait)
Fascinating long read piece on the fight against scientific fraud in the Guardian.

Although the article title includes a reference to hi-tech methods, the text is far more about the motivations of those who choose to wage war against bad science, with a specific focus on a group of psychologists from Tilburg University whose origins lie in an investigation into one of their own: Diederik_Stapel, who was dean of social and behavioural sciences until it began to emerge that he was responsible for faking data.

Highly recommended.
