One can start by looking at publications. All scientists publish their results. If they don’t it is a red flag. The publications give a scientist’s affiliations, so if there is any doubt, it is easy to verify whether a scientist actually works where they say they do (a quick e-mail to Harvard University could have saved the Yomiuri Shimbun a lot of embarrassment). Publications also list the names of collaborators (making it easy to confirm with them that the scientist has done the experiments claimed), the names of the funders (making it easy to check whether resources were available) and declarations of conflicts of interest (revealing potential biases).
