so how often does one publish a journal, then get feedbacks from competitors/other research groups saying that they do not believe your paper, and ask you to send them your sample so they can run the same project, comparing their results from yours.

Because I am about to submit my first paper, but then my professor was saying i should verify my data accurately to make sure the data is correct before submission (which I totally agree of course). He then goes on and says how his career is in my hands and if some other lab asks us to give them our samples to run and get different results then we have no more careers in science >_<

U should be totally sure of what U r publishing and should check everything to make sure your co-authors also are correct. U must have heard of this person. He was covered in all the news.

I mean, it could happen. But normally it happens with really hot, exciting, and new discovers. But of course you must be sure about your results. Anyway if you publish in a 10 point impact factor journal (or lets say something less than a nature, science or cell) I dont think anybody is gonna ask you for your samples!! :D

You cant compare what you are going to publish with that korean prof (at least, I think?)

I suppose you are not going to publish something really hot?

You should always be honest and even then: its possible that other authors will find other results...

How many times have I read a paper stating that they found it was X, while 2 years later another paper appears stating its not X, but Y...

If you results are the way they are... well then you are not lying...

But offcourse, you need to check everything many times so you dont write things that are absolute nonsens.

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
