At a time when many papers published in reputed journals are being retracted on the grounds of unethical practices like data fabrication and falsification, one scientist is taking a totally different and novel route to do science that gives no room for such practices. She is Rosie Redfield, a microbiologist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Unlike how other researchers try to replicate in their labs the finding of a scientist, Redfield is trying to replicate the disputed study published in Science journal last year in a totally different way — doing her research in full public glare, detailing all the elements of her work in an open lab notebook on her blog.
