Update on the Regnerus situation

Here’s an update on the brouhaha over Mark Regnerus’ study. As it should have, the complaint against Regnerus to the University of Texas was ruled to be without merit.

Here’s the opening paragraphs of the article:

“No formal investigation is warranted regarding allegations of scientific misconduct against a faculty member’s study that raised doubts about gay parenting, the University of Texas announced today.

The university conducted an inquiry to determine whether the accusations against associate professor Mark Regnerus concerning an article of his in the journal Social Science Research had merit and warranted a formal investigation. The allegations were leveled by freelance writer Scott Rosensweig, who uses the byline Scott Rose.

After consulting with a four-member advisory panel composed of senior university faculty members, the Office of the Vice President for Research concluded that there is insufficient evidence to warrant an investigation, the university said in a news release.

Provost and Executive Vice President Steven Leslie accepted the report on Tuesday and deemed the matter closed from an institutional perspective, UT said.”
