Faking science data is no joke, except on TV's Big Bang Theory

Research can be frustrating, and researchers can act like real jerks when their experiments fail or don’t produce the expected results. But is this ever a reason to falsify data? The season premier of the popular CBS television show “The Big Bang Theory,” which aired Sept. 21, dealt with the ethics and consequences of faking results.

SPOILER ALERT: I am going to discuss the plot of this episode in detail. So if you haven’t seen the show yet and you don't want to know what happens, please come back and read this after you have watched the show.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
