I'm starting this thread which I will edit links into, leading to articles reporting on the ongoing fraudulent research and corruption within papers published in Scientific journals, or even studies not published.

I've just seen so many instances in recent years as further secrets are revealed as part of our shifting times, which can actually be attributed to astrology when you look at it deeper as it's an aspect based on the planets and astrological age we are traversing through.

If you ever run into an article or story online about such a thing, feel free to quickly post a link on this thread. This idea is a bit like that vaccination thread over on the Health board.

In academic publishing, a scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further the progression of science.

Duke University to pay $112.5 million settlement for faked research
"A whistleblower said Duke falsified research on nearly $200 million worth of grants, and he will collect nearly $34 million for his role in uncovering the fraud, which prosecutors said spanned from 2006 to 2018 and involved money from the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency. The chief researcher at the center of the scandal, Erin Potts-Kant, had more than a dozen papers stemming from her work on mice retracted. Prosecutors said the school’s higher-ups knew about her fraudulent research but allowed it to continue. The school had contended it didn’t learn until later." ... "Duke medical professor Anil Potti engaged in misconduct while researching treatments in human cancer patients. Mr. Potti’s studies were published in top medical journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine and Lancet Oncology between 2006 and 2009."

“Peer Reviewed:” Science Losing Credibility As Large Amounts Of Research Shown To Be False
"In the case of medicine, a lot of information has emerged showing just how much corruption really goes on. The Editors-in-Chiefs of several major medical journals have been quite blunt, with perhaps one of the best examples coming from Dr. Richard Horton, the current Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet, who says, “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. "

Why “Peer Reviewed” Science Continues To Lose A Lot of Credibility
"John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article titled "Why Most Published Research Findings Are False," which subsequently became the most widely accessed article in the history."

Mobile phones are creating horned teens because of their posture from using them. That is a true scientific paper — not satire. The research team happened to publish 3 studies in 3 consecutive years. Two of which are large sample studies. All of their papers were peer reviewed. It also happens to be published via Nature, the world's leading multidisciplinary science journal. Yet, John Hawks, an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, who’s a professional paleoanthropologist, picks it right apart in this article below. Hawks has also been part of a review team for that same science journal in the past (different study). My point here is not who is right or wrong, the authors of the horned study David Shahar and Mark G. L. Sayers, or John Hawks, but the fact that a study like that was easily released by one of the world’s top science journals, concluding that it was phones creating bone spurs that the media labeled as horns, yet based on what John explains, it may also be complete rubbish in terms of its conclusion. John is pretty convincing. So, to me, this is the perfect example of how we can’t trust every single peer reviewed scientific paper that’s put out through popular journals.
