Report from Japan’s Mainichi Shimbun:
The Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists (JSA) on June 29 announced the results of an investigation finding that at least 172 research papers by Yoshitaka Fujii, a former associate professor of anesthesiology at Toho University, contained fabricated data.
The investigation covered 212 papers listing Fujii as an author in 41 journals between 1991 an 2011. The society judged 172 papers published since 1993 were fabricated as they could not confirm experiments had actually been conducted, due to factors such as missing raw data and an absence of details on the administration of medications.
One hundred and seventy-two papers with confirmed fabricated data. That’s insane.
