25244656 story Dutch Psychologist Faked Data In At Least 30 Scientific Papers 254 Posted by samzenpus on Wednesday November 02, 2011 @10:36AM from the if-it-first-you-don't-succeed-make-it-up dept. Attila Dimedici writes "A professor at Tilburg University has been caught using fake data in over 30 scientific papers. Diederik Stapel's latest paper claimed that eating meat made people anti-social and selfish. Other academics were skeptical of his findings and raised doubts about his research. Upon investigation it was discovered that he had invented the data he used in many of his papers and there is a question as to whether or not he used faked data in all of his published work."
