Publisher Description:

Scientific Deception provides a timely overview of the subject examining the entire range of possible misconduct from the most blatant fraud to relatively innocent self-deception. The author explores the reasons for such behaviors before going on to discuss responses and policy implications, drawing on material from the United States, Australia, and Europe (Including the UK). Each chapter includes annotated lists of references, including the most up-to-date material.
With pressure growing in the UK for more concerted action — especially in the field of medicine — and for the setting-up of an independent investigatory body, this book is essential reading.
