In a statement to The Crimson, former Harvard psychology professor Marc D. Hauser responded to a report by the Office of Research Integrity published earlier today finding him responsible for six counts of research misconduct, including fabrication of data, doctoring of results, and misrepresentation of research methods.
The letter attacks the scope of the inquiry into Hauser’s research and insinuations that Hauser’s body of work has been thrown into question by the investigation.
A group of prominent academics are circulating a letter criticizing Harvard’s handling of the allegations leveled at Marc D. Hauser.
Hauser's resignation from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences ends a career at Harvard that began with promise but was marred by a research misconduct investigation.
