Re: Coping with scientific misconduct
Thank you for your comment. I have also heard, anecdotally, of US investigations which were 'extremely thorough' and therefore very costly and have wondered if there wasn't a more cost-effective way of doing it. Especially when researchers are exonerated, the often lengthy process can be gruelling. Maybe this is the inevitable price of a thorough and fair investigation but my gut instinct (no data!) says it's not!
