Gwynne, Peter. 2998 Scientist to appeal misconduct charge. Physics World 21(8)11.

Reports that lawyers for Rusi Taleyarkhan are preparing an appeal over the findings of a panel set up by Purdue University that found him guilty of two charges of scientific misconduct in that he had cited a paper by researchers in his own lab as if it were an independent confirmation of his alleged discovery of bubble fusion in 2002 and also that he added the name of a student who had not contributed to that paper as an author.
