British Medical Journal: Scientific misconduct is worryingly prevalent in the UK, shows BMJ survey

The survey data was disclosed at a meeting organised by BMJ and the Committee on Publication Ethics to discuss how to best address research misconduct in the UK. We welcome the support shown for the work of UKRIO at the meeting and the consensus that more needs to be done to promote good research conduct and address questionable practices and misconduct.

The story has also been covered by Times Higher Education, the Financial Times, Reuters and others.
