Just after I started writing and lecturing about scientific fraud, one of my colleagues at Caltech, a famous and much-honored scientist, came to see me about the matter. "Look," he said, "all that stuff you talk about, plagiarism, authorship problems and so on, that's not really important. The coin of the realm is scientific truth. If you fake data, you're counterfeiting the coin. That's a serious crime. The rest of it is just a matter of who's been handling the coin. It doesn't matter all that much."
