A Comparison of the Views of College of Business Deans and Faculty on Undeserved Authorships
Flanagan, Jennifer L.
Journal of Education for Business, v90 n5 p241-246 2015
Deans and faculty at Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business-accredited colleges of business were surveyed on the extent and impact of the occurrence of undeserved authorships in business journal articles. Eighty percent of the deans and faculty responding acknowledged the occurrence of undeserved authorships in published business journal articles. There were disagreements on the extent of occurrence, with the deans reporting a lower rate of occurrence than faculty. Deans also indicated less impact of undeserved authorships on promotions, tenure awards, and merit increases than did faculty. With the strong increase in pressure to publish in order to be promoted, colleges of business need to be aware of the possibility of undeserved authorships.
