Bloch, Konrad and Relman, Arnold S. "Preventing Fraud," Science 245 (29 September 1989), p.
In this letter to the editor, two distinguished scientists suggest that all co-authors of an article
cosign a letter agreeing to be responsible for all the material in the paper. They make this
suggestion, as they say, to prevent fraud. However, Koshland, editor of Science, adds in a
response that such a letter would "dilute the force of policy already in effect and not likely affect
those intent on ignoring the rules."
