‘One in seven doctors is aware of scientific fraud’

One in seven Dutch doctors is aware that data used in research has been faked and 22% say they know of cases where the outcome of research has been tweaked, according to a survey of 800 doctors by medical journal Medisch Contact.

In addition, one in three of the family doctors and specialists questioned said they knew of cases where names of people had been added to research projects even though they had not been involved.
