On How Editors of Academic Journals at Institutions of Higher Learning Should Resist Academic Corruption
Jing, Xiao
Chinese Education and Society, v40 n6 p47-53 Nov-Dec 2007
Academic corruption is a hot issue in today's society. "Academic corruption" means that certain individuals in academic circles, driven by the desire for personal gain, resort to various kinds of nonnormative and unethical behavior in academic research activities. These include: academic self-piracy, academic piracy, copying and plagiarism, multiple submission of papers, impersonation, concept appropriation, footnote opportunism, academic deception, slipshod work, verbal garbage, buying and selling of writings, and other academic distortions. This article describes (1) how academic corruption harms the Party; (2) the causes of academic corruption; (3) the main problems confronting China's institutions of higher learning in the effort to control academic corruption; (4) current prevention and control of academic corruption in the United States, France, Germany, and Britain; and (5) proposals for countermeasures by academic journals in China's institutions of higher learning against academic corruption. (Contains 6 notes.) [This article was translated by Ted Wang.]
