Elena Ceaușescu's fraudulent scientific work

Post by wilsontown » Wed Dec 22, 2021 11:00 am

Interesting article in the Guardian:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/ ... tific-work

Not something I had been aware of before. Interesting that no-one seems to be claiming there is any problem with the scientific work itself, it's just that Ceaușescu's supposed authorship is fraudulent.

I had a very small hand in this... one of the scientists involved contacted me and I put him in touch with Melissa Davey at the Guardian. 8-)

You have your sticky mitts over lots of interesting things these days. Retirement is suiting you very well indeed!

I saw that, I’d been aware of her fraudulent career but not that the RSC seemed to be dragging their heels over correcting the record, which seems hard to justify.
