Pathology Sections: The Four Chronic Diseases of Academic Corruption
Chinese Education and Society, v40 n6 p35?36 Nov-Dec 2007
One might say that people bitterly detest "academic corruption" and call it immoral and dishonest academic conduct, and that the deliberate falsification, covert plagiarism, and empty rhetoric employed by certain scholars when expounding their theories and the various means they use when attempting to get their works published and awarded prizes are certainly very worrisome. This article discusses four chronic diseases that academic corruption has manifested over the past few years. These are: (1) plagiarism; (2) piecing and cobbling; (3) creating "academic bubbles"; and (4) academic wheeling and dealing. [This article was translated by Ted Wang.]
