The article focuses on the issue surrounding the creation of a research misconduct agency in Canada. The Canadian Research Integrity Committee argues that the nation does not need an investigatory agency to handle research misconduct as it will undermine the academic bodies. Jim Turk, Canadian Association of University Teachers Executive-Director, stresses that there is a need to create a national regime to oversee research misconduct as the status quo has inconsistency in handling the problems.
