Dear Dr. Nirenberg:
Several months ago The Scientist carried a special section containing first-hand accounts by scientists who had made allegations of scientific misconduct. In each case, their allegations were subsequently found to be justified. Disturbingly, however, all three scientists experienced difficulties in getting their point across. The Scientist also carried a companion article by Ned Feder and myself discussing some of the questions.
I think the articles raise disturbing and important issues, which deserve to be as widely considered as possible. For this reason, I am enclosing a Xerox copy of the articles. I would be most interested in learning your reaction to the points made there.
Sincerely,
Walter W. Stewart
