Scientific misconductScientific misconduct
includes such actions as intentionally falsifying research results reported in
article, which is considered unethical and in some jurisdictions may be illegal. It also includes violation of ethical
standards regarding human
experiments, such as the standard that a human subject of the experiment must give informed consent to the experiment.
The word falsifying used above should not be confused with the legitimate and essential activity of finding and sharing evidence that contradicts a hypothesis (see falsifiability) but is used in the sense of presenting known false information as true with the intent to deceive.
