Stapel Cont’d

June 29, 2012

Meanwhile, there is another researcher who has resigned based on iffy research practices.  Uri Simonsohn has an algorithm (yet to be published) that finds suspect data.  Ed Yong writes about it here.  The practice here is more….grey (although over the line).  Removal of subjects for some reason (which does happen), but it wasn’t reported, and didn’t go against hypothesis.

Oh dear.

 

And, editing in.  The articles withdrawn. Smeesters is the author that have resigned, and has been accused of massaging his data in – well – those ways who are not quite allowed.
