We made two errors when editing this news article by Annette Tuffs(6 March, News Extra, We said that the German Research Foundation had failed to find Friedhelm Herrmann, a former professor at Ulm University, guilty of having acquired grants on the basis of forged scientific results. We should have said that the foundation failed to charge Professor Herrmann with that offence.The article's title was also wrong. It should have said: “Research foundation failed to charge professor with fraud offence.”
