In this paper we will present the results of our (Printeger) research on the incidence of scientific misconduct. Despite the rising academic and public attention for scientific fraud, adequate knowledge on the prevalence and understanding of misconduct in science is still unsatisfactory.
We will first discuss the difficult measurement the incidence of scientific misconduct. Beyond conceptual and methodological problems, several other issues are complicating the measurement of misconduct in scientific practises, such as official procedures, dark number, reporting attitudes of researchers, .etc. Second we will shortly discuss diverse and lacking registration practices that could be observed when collecting data from institutions in partner countries.
But this paper will focus on discussing the results of our analysis and reflect on how these data deliver insight in not only the character of scientific misconduct, but as well in how scientific misconduct is dealt with in an institutional (academic) context.
