Criminologists scrutinise academia in wake of scientific scandals

Last modified: May 29, 2017

While scientific misconduct has never been given much attention by criminologists, over the last few years things have changed. In this short interview, Rita Faria, a lecturer in criminology at the University of Porto, explains how ’recent scientific scandals have prompted a surge of interest from criminologists into the “occupational crime” that occurs in universities.’ The term occupational crime refers to a crime that occurs as part of a job, such as white collar or “elite” crime.
