Now in its fourth edition, Fraud and Misconduct in Biomedical Research boasts an impressive list of contributors from around the globe and introduces a new focus for the book, transforming it from a series of monographs into a publication that will quickly become an essential textbook on all areas of research fraud and misconduct.

Key features include:

  • a comprehensive analysis of the historical aspects of research misconduct, with cases from across the world;
  • an extended section on the detection of research misconduct, examining the roles of the peer review process, statistical analysis, and routine enhanced audit;
  • a completely new section, 'The Way Forward', which looks at the role of national advisory bodies.

    Fraud and Misconduct in Biomedical Research strives to uncover the issues surrounding clinical research in order to raise awareness of unethical practice, open debate and express concerns. This book is internationally relevant; from anyone who is involved with biomedical research or has an interest in fraud and misconduct, to the recipients and beneficiaries of research, who are directly affected by unreliable research.

    Review:

    This book has a world wide approach with careful warnings where some countries still lag behind in their policing of research papers. All researchers should read this book before they commence their projects, and then they should read it again just before submitting their work for possible publication.
    Maturitas Spring 2009

    The book is unique in the way it informs us about historical aspects of the lack of research integrity and provides definitions for misconduct and other forms of scientific dishonesty.
    The Lancet, March 2009

    The editors have structured the fourth edition differently from earlier versions... The aim has been to create more of a standard text with an appeal to students and teachers of medical research and publication ethics, as well as academics and those of us from a more commercial background. In fact, anyone with an interest in ensuring the highest standards of conduct in research will benefit from reading this book.
    The Write Stuff, Vol 18, No.3 2009

    I cannot think that there is any branch of medicine to which the messages which come so clearly from this excellent book may not be applicable.
    Pharmaceutical Medicine

    You can read all about it in this racy yet scholarly book. I predict you will not be able to lay it down.
    Medical Journal of Australia

    Provides additional stimulus to a discussion that undoubtedly will continue into the future.
