Scientific misconduct

UntitledThis paper was published today in the journal mBio. Moral of the story – men should stop lying. 228 cases of academic misconduct in the past 18 years is a very low number. As a scientist, I do wish that number was ZERO. And I also accept that vast cases of misconduct is not reported. I think every student who chooses any scientific field as their major in college should take an oath not to lie in their work. And anyone ever caught lying or committing academic misconduct should be barred forever from conducting scientific investigations. Science is built on truth, data, and facts. Even slightly modifying it brings in bias and falsehood, and therefore it is no longer science.
