Several scientists twittered, that a study published in Science

Lönnstedt & Eklöv (2016): Environmentally relevant concentrations of 
microplastic particles influence larval fish ecology

Science 352: 1213-1216

was more or less "thin air", e.g. not all of the experiments described 
were carried out. The University started an investigation and concluded 
misconduct.

Now my question: as a reviewer, would you have detected the fraud?

I found some mistakes in the statistics of the materials and methods 
sections (Supplement), but I´m not sure I would have raised hell about 
the data.

Is it the responsibility of the reviewer to check, whether there was in 
fact an experiment performed? Or the responsibility of the University / 
field station etc to make sure, people do in fact work?

How suspicious do we have to be?

I always thought, that fish are too unpredictable to fake fish studies

kind regards
Irene
