It Ain't Just Climate Scientists Who Fudge


In what may be a Canadian record, a celebrated and prolific doctor has retracted nine University of Calgary studies that contained bogus data.
In the latest in a string of retractions, Dr. Cory Toth has pulled two reports from the medical literature because data and figures were “manipulated” in his laboratory at the University of Calgary medical school.
“I can’t say whether it’s an official record, but we haven’t seen anyone else in Canada retract that many papers since we launched in 2010,” said Dr. Ivan Oransky, co-founder of Retraction Watch, a U.S.-based group that shines light in some of academia’s darker corners. The group alerted the University of Calgary to problems with several of Toth’s studies.
