A Third of Papers Made Up

All other informal historical discussion, ancient or modern, falls here. This includes the topics of Islam, Buddhism, and other religious traditions.

It seems to be more about plagiarism (and self plagiarism) than fraud in the sense of bogus results.

Andrew Criddle
1/3rd of neuroscience papers.
After screening some 5000 papers, he estimates up to 34% of neuroscience papers published in 2020 were likely made up or plagiarized; in medicine, the figure was 24%.

Of 15,120 PubMed®-listed publications, most fakes were native Chinese:
Results The classification rules using two (three) indicators had sensitivities of 86% (90%) and false alarm rates of 44% (37%). From 2010 to 2020 the RFP rate increased from 16% to 28%. Given the 1.3 million biomedical Scimago-listed publications in 2020, we estimate the scope of >300,000 RFPs annually. Countries with the highest RFP proportion are Russia, Turkey, China, Egypt, and India (39%-48%), with China, in absolute terms, as the largest contributor of all RFPs (55%).

Not to sound all rayczist, but eliminate heavily restrict those academic 'BRICs' and the ratio of 'Cheating, Low-Life Scum' in biomed fields drops accordingly. This is a political-economic problem for the West.

Hahhhvahd, crimson again lol.

(Or, perhaps the Real Problem with "credibility" in a Post-Truth world is exactly this: If even HBS can't get it's sh*t straight, how can the rest of us?! Psychopaths gonna psychopath, bro. They're wicked smaht!)

The fact-checkers state:
“Specifically, we wrote a report about four studies for which we had accumulated the strongest evidence of fraud. We believe that many more Gino-authored papers contain fake data,” the three wrote in a blog post last week.

{... wait for it ...}

“Perhaps dozens.”

The Harvard Fraud is now playing the Woman Card: she's a "Victime" of Misogyny, Blame The Patriarchy. (Bet no one saw that coming, lol)
https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2023 ... efamation/

The suit also alleges discrimination on the basis of gender, claiming that “Harvard’s gender bias against women was a motivating factor” in the “severe penalties” imposed on Gino, in violation of Title IX — a federal anti-sex discrimination law.
...
Filed in Massachusetts federal district court by Nesenoff & Miltenberg LLP, the 12-count lawsuit claims that Gino “has never falsified or fabricated data.”

The filing alleges that Data Colada engaged in a “vicious, defamatory smear campaign” against Gino “despite having no evidence that Plaintiff engaged in any act of ‘data fraud.’”

Edit Update: this article discusses the legal angle(s) of Gino's defamation lawsuit. And a predictable Whataboutery from Feminist Simps, even if Team Gino remains in hiding, "anonymous".

Feminism is The Ultimate Excuse.

I recall: In 1980, notorious Boston Marathon cheater Rosie Ruiz had her title stripped eight days after accepting the winner's medal. In the meantime, especially in those first few days of legitimate doubts and tough questions, angry Feminists rallied for Rosie, clamouring how unfair it all was: that any MAN would dispute this 'Fastest Woman' bullshit! For the rest of her life, coasting on toxic fumes of that warped Feminist Pride, remorseless Rosie maintained she ran the entire 1980 Boston Marathon and won fair & square. She'd show 'em, too: "Go Rosie!"

In fact, she was just a lying psychopathic put-on, a crook, all along: end-of. So I wonder: will 'victimized' Prof. Gino be defended by hordes of Third Wave Feminist harpies, now? Here's one:

For the 'Woke': all Plagiarist BRICs 'caught cheating' should likewise be "Victims" of Racism too, right? In that cancerous, liberal, upside-down world of Academia, Yes.

"Disrupters, be more dishonest." You couldn't make this shit up, and no one ever dared question this woman before, why?? (Feminism, that Eternal Mantle of Victimhood.)

But it seems, at long last, the tide has turned ... Oh, poor girls!
