The article focuses on the need for Canada to establish formal policies and procedures in dealing with scientific misconduct. According to the author, the country's system for handling misconduct is so haphazard and nontransparent wherein it has become impossible to accurately gauge the efficacy of scientific findings. He suggests the creation of an independent National Research Integrity Agency to handle the misconduct.
