Discussion here (see also Basbøll comment).

I don’t actually know of any cases of data faking in political science and, Frank Fischer aside, our field doesn’t seem to have much of a problem with plagiarism copying big blocks of text (with minor modifications) from others’ writings without attribution. But I know that some of you are interested in general questions about research integrity and so these stories and reflections might interest you.
