There is plenty of commentary that points to the reluctance of institutions to report the research misconduct of its researchers. Institutions should instead embrace their key responsibility in safeguarding the integrity of the scientific record. Rather than being concerned it might harm their reputation and so, funding, institutions should see it as a badge of pride if they are transparent and work to correct falsehoods and call cheats to account. National bodies must recognise that institutions have a conflict of interest when it comes to investigation and reporting of research misconduct.
