Fraud by scientist at New Jersey's UMDNJ

The Scientist reports on data fraud by a scientist, Mona Thiruchelvam, formerly at the University of Medicine and Dentistry, New Jersey (UMDNJ).

Articles in the journals Environmental Health Perspectives and Journal of Biological Chemistry were implicated. Both articles have been highly cited, with the paper in the Journal of Biological Chemistry study having been cited 73 times. Just because something is highly cited does not mean it is correct!
