            Abstract

            With increased occurrences of Scientific Misconduct in the form of Scientific Misconduct, Scientific Fraud and Dishonest Scientific Report being reported in leading Scientific Journals and in the regular press, it is befitting to ask whether Kuhns Theory of Scientific Revolutions foresaw the epidemic that afflicts the Scientific World and Enterprise. This analysis reflects that even though Thomas Kuhn did not deal directly with Scientific Misconduct, Scientific Fraud and Dishonest Scientific Report, his theory excludes Data fabrication, Data Falsification and Dishonest Scientific Report as part of scientific discoveries. A proposal to prevent or eradicate the committing of Scientific Misconduct, Scientific Fraud and Dishonest Scientific Report is put forward for discussion purposes.
