Shaking Up Science

Last week’s Science issue had an interesting News Focus about “Two journal editors [that] take a hard look at honesty in science and question the ethos of their profession”

With a bit too much pathos for my taste, but informative nevertheless, the article gives background on Ferric Fang and Arturo Casadevall, two microbiologists, and their work on what they perceive as systemic problems in the science system, including topics such as retractions, wrong career incentives, grants and peer review.
