Meeting 4 (2/10)

We will turn to issues in research ethics, professional misconduct, fraud, and other more insidious vices such as unbridled optimism. In this connection, I think it's worth thinking about the whole Cold Fusion affair from twenty years ago (Grazer's article documents it). But our primary text will be another Chapter from Webster's book.

If you're looking for other interesting instances of fraud, the second chapter of Junk Science (mostly available on Google Books), documents a number of interesting cases.
