The Danish Committees on Scientific Dishonesty (DCSD) dealt with 14 cases during the period under review. In two cases the complainants were upheld, in that the actions committed came within the stipulated criteria for scientific dishonesty. In none of the instances, however, was there any evidence of intent or gross negligence.

At the beginning of 2003 DCSD published its decision concerning three complaints of scientific dishonesty in connection with Bjørn Lomborg's book The Skeptical Environmentalist. The decision gave rise to considerable debate. This is particularly due to the fact that in this, as in so many earlier cases, DCSD applied the standard of good scientific practice.
