Panel description: While there’s debate over whether scientific fraud is on the rise, there’s no debate about the fact that such fraud always makes for a good – and important – story. Hear from journalists who have ferreted out major cases of fraud that became international front-page stories. Follow them down the rabbit holes of retractions and investigations, and get tips on where to find evidence and develop sources.
