Fraud and the restoration of science in the 1830s

A Chinese «paper mill» has produced at least 400 scientific articles to order. A Norwegian researcher was central to the discovery.

 

The articles are often chosen in cooperation with Science Norway, since this English part of forskning.no re-destributes some of the content to a broader audience.
