[Excerpt: Preventing misconduct]

To diminish the threat that misconduct poses to science, scientists and society:

[::] Authorities should acknowledge that deliberate misconduct is an important contributor to irreproducibility. [::] Mentors should be evaluated to assure quality; those who contribute to misconduct should be penalized. [::] Institutions and government agencies should have procedures to protect whistle-blowers from retaliation. [::] Senior faculty members who are found guilty of misconduct should face severe penalties. [::] Institutions that fail to establish and follow policies and processes to prevent misconduct should be sanctioned.
