Question 1: When a social science researcher like Michael J. LaCour publishes another bogus or fabricated study in a peer-reviewed journal–or in the case of Alice Goffman, an entire book based on dubious sources–what legal liability (civil or criminal or both) does the fraudster or publisher have in such cases of academic malfeasance? Question 2: If the answer to Question 1 is “none”, why are academics held to a lower legal standard than everyone else?
