Panel: Issues of Fraud in Research

Posted: 5/24/2021 (CSDE Seminar Series)

This week, CSDE’s seminar is a panel discussion about issues of fraud in research. Fraud in research is a multifaceted and long-standing problem that has evolved and become more complex as research has moved online, making it easier for participants and fraudsters to participate in research. Panelists include CSDE Research Scientist Christine Leibbrand, Melissa Simone (University of Minnesota) and Danielle Woodward (UW Social Work).

Christine Leibbrand will discuss a research study that experienced substantial online fraud and the methods implemented to identify it, Melissa Simone will discuss her research on preventing survey bots, and Danielle Woodward will discuss fraud that occurs amongst human participants and researchers. CSDE Director Sara Curran will moderate the panel.
