There has long been a need for a systematic presentation of the many issues surrounding scientific misconduct. Among the questions that should be covered in such a presentation are (1) what leads people to commit these acts of misconduct? (2) has there been a significant increase in such acts in recent years or is there simply a greater awareness of these issues? (3) what can we learn from the approaches of different countries to dealing with this problem? and (4) how should scientific misconduct be defined and what should be the process for investigating it in ways that are fair both to the whistleblower and the accused? This book sheds light on many of these issues, but it is not a systematic, comprehensive treatment of them.
