Harvard professor found responsible for scientific misconduct

August 23, 2010

Harvard has found prominent psychology professor Marc Hauser responsible for eight instances of scientific misconduct, involving three published papers and five additional experiments, and the matter is being investigated by the U.S. attorney's office.

Arts and Sciences Dean Michael D. Smith wrote in a letter to the faculty that the experiments “were designed and conducted, but there were problems involving data acquisition, data analysis, data retention, and the reporting of research methodologies and results.’’

In a statement released Aug. 20, Hauser apologized to the university community.
