Documented high-profile cases of fraud in scientific research go back as far as the 19th century to Gregor Mendel, widely considered the father of modern genetics, and more recently to Sir Cyril Burt, an educational psychologist whose studies of IQ in twins have greatly influenced the continuing debate of nature versus nurture. In this video, I discuss how this fraud was discovered, as well as more recent detections of fraud in Psychology literature. The next video will delve deeper into one specific case of fraud discovered by Dr. Uri Simonsohn.
