While I was in Scotland last month to give a talk, I had the pleasure to meet with the wonderful Gemma Milne. She is a Science and Technology Journalist and founder of Science: Disrupt.
She has the gift to turn lovely breakfast chatter about science misconduct into beautiful written words. Here are two recent articles Gemma wrote about the work that we science “sleuths” are doing.
Fighting to slow the rise of medical fraud – “Image manipulation has been a part of modern life for years, but when medical images are being manipulated, lives and livelihoods could be at stake” – Gemma Milne for the Times (published on Raconteur.net).
This Science Vigilante Calls Out Bogus Results in Prestigious Journals – “With pressure to “publish or perish,” some scientists fake their research results. Elisabeth Bik spends her days correcting them” – Gemma Milne for OneZero / Medium.
