Science, Fraud and Lies

This site is about the way scientists cheat, by falsifying the scientific literature and rigging debate to include and acknowledge only "acceptable" opinion. It is derived from my as yet unpublished book "A Habit of Lies." The great bulk of the site is accessible from the "main content" link or, more conveniently, from the menu to the left.

The particular topic is taken from my own experiences in the field of cell biology but I think the practices described are widespread. The site says the things I want to say so do take a look around. The content is mostly text, though there are some cartoons to lighten what can become a heavy topic. I'm sorry about the weighty style but it is part of the subject and cannot be avoided.
