Under the supervision of dr. M.A.L.M. van Assen and dr. J.M. Wicherts I am working on my doctoral project on detecting possible data fabrication/falsification in the social sciences. In this project we develop and apply statistical methods that, on the basis of information reported in a scientific paper, can give a first indication for data fabrication. Typical methods to detect fabrication require the raw data and cannot be applied at grand scale.
