NOT good

Yahoo! News

According to a survey by the HealthPartners Research Foundation, more than 1 in 7 scientists admitted to changing research designs or results to satisfy funders. More than 1 in 3 admitted to lesser sins, such as publishing the same results in more than one journal. The Washington Post has put together a brief summary of the results.

Apparently, our incentive systems in science and academia have become perverted.
