Proof that the Manchester University Research Integrity Office refused to examine evidence of Formal Enquiry Panel fraud because it was not submitted with 10 days of the fraud being discovered



Bill Courtney comments

(i) He did not submit his request within ten days because he appealed to The Information Commission for advice and help first. This was made clear to the Research Integrity Office.

(ii) The formal enquiry process lies at the heart of science quality control.
The 10 day rule is only fair if the formal enquiry process is honest. But if a Research Integrity Office is presented with evidence that the process has been corrupted, its first duty to science is to test the evidence in order to protect British research standards.
