(10 Jul 2019)  Sweden has passed a law to create a government agency to investigate research misconduct. On June 18, the Swedish Parliament passed the law to create the Research Misconduct Board, which will become active in January 2020 and oversee cases of misconduct from public higher education institutions, central government agencies, municipalities, county councils, and private education providers. This move comes after a series of high-profile scientific misconduct cases in the last few years, Nature reported yesterday (July 9).
