We have written to JRSM to correct several errors concerning UKRIO that appear in a recent editorial and article on research misconduct. Our letter of correction as we understand it, will be published in due course. We are grateful to JRSM for allowing us to set the record straight. Despite the unfortunate errors, the articles are fascinating reading and we welcome their publication.
Update – October 2010: we welcome JRSM‘s publication of further articles on research misconduct. They contain important lessons for the research community. Unfortunately, two of the latest articles contain serious errors concerning UKRIO and our letter of correction can be found here. Again, we are grateful to JRSM for allowing us to set the record straight.
