    Really interesting piece from Science magazine. Very much worth your time to read.

    Basically, a researcher made up whole trials, his co-authors put their names on his papers without checking anything, peer review failed to spot numerous problems with the studies, journals failed to react to red flags raised after publication.

    Not only journals that are failing as gatekeepers when many universities will defend researchers for the funding that accompanies them
