Scientific journal investigating UMass hydrogen study after revelations of gas industry influence December 13, 2022
Regina LaRocque, an infectious disease physician and researcher at Harvard Medical School who is also a climate activist, said she began contacting the journal with concerns about the study shortly after its publication.
“If the journal doesn’t take this kind of thing seriously, it’s a problem for the whole research endeavor,” she said. “In our world of academics, we rely on people being honest brokers of their work, both the funding and the writing of it. Our entire ecosystem of science depends on the integrity of the people doing it.”
