Pencharz Report Calls for National Research Monitor

January 24, 2007

The same report that found Memorial University's research policies to be sound, also urges a national organization to monitor research in Canada. Such systems are in place already in Denmark and the US, with more on the way from Japan and Australia. The already existing monitors have found that cases of scientific misconduct occur at a rate of three per million of the population -- implying that there might be between 30 to 60 cases per year in Canada, but far fewer are currently being reported.
