Summary

A joint report on disgraced social psychologist Diederik Stapel was issued on 28 November by three committees, one for each of the universities where he worked. That same day, Stapel made his first media appearance in more than a year. In a video statement, he said he was deeply sorry and announced he had written an autobiography to explain how his fraud happened. But the key message in the joint report said that the fraud is not just about Stapel but colleagues, co-authors, reviewers, and editors at even the most prestigious journals.
