Misleading' science career report criticised

    Press/Media: Other


    Jonathan Mendel, a lecturer in human geography at the University of Dundee, said the report used "unjustified methodologies" to reach its conclusions and was "overly reliant" on weak online sources and media reports, with some sections referencing only Wikipedia.

    Although sources are referenced, he said the report lifted "significant passages of text" word for word.

    Dr Mendel also questioned the Government's use of "weak research" to promote a rosy view of future jobs in science when funding was being cut.
