1) Academic Fraud; 2) New journal from Public Library of Science

:: An interesting article in The Education Guardian weekly discusses about academic fraud, and cites a U Minnesota study of 4,000 researchers in >100 faculties. The study "found that one in three scientists plagiarised, 22% handled data "carelessly" and 15% occasionally withheld unfavourable data." I'm still looking for the study. Does anyone have any information about it?

:: The Public Library of Science has announced its first journal: PLoS Biology. Online and print editions will appear in October 2003. (Thanks, Catherine.)
