Show Me the Money: Looking at the Cost of Research Misconduct Cases

presented by Elizabeth Gammon
assistant professor, Division of Management, Policy and Community Health
University of Texas School of Public Health

While research misconduct in publicly funded medical research increasingly has been the object of discussion, public policy debate, government and institutional action, and scientific research, the costs of research misconduct have been unexamined. Gammon will describe a model to estimate the per-case cost of research misconduct, specifically the costs of fabrication, falsification and plagiarism, in publicly funded medical research.

Using the database of Research Misconduct Findings maintained by the Office of Research Integrity of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Gammon employs the model to estimate costs of research misconduct in publicly funded medical research among faculty from 2000 to 2005.
