In 2011 three Dutch universities conducted an exhaustive investigation into the published works of renowned social psychologist Diederik Stapel. The review committee found that almost all of his more than 100 journal articles were questionable. Eventually, he admitted to fabricating data on an enormous scale. The uncovering of his misconduct led to questions, not only of his integrity, but of the scholarly publishing system, especially in the social sciences. The presentation will offer background of this case and some analysis of the outcome of his publications.
