Remarks / more information:

Assen , Van MarcelOn behalf of the 'Committee Levelt' I examined 46 papers of Stapel and six dissertations to detect evidence of fraud and questionable research practices. I will present the framework of the investigation and some procedures that were particularly useful in the Stapel case. The framework and procedures boil down to finding inconsistencies in the pairs 'research materials-data', 'research materials-article', 'data-article', or detecting extremely unlikely patterns in the data. I will emphasize outcomes of the fraud investigation with respect to the state of empirical research and the use and understanding of statistics by researchers in general.
