On the Causes for and Countermeasures against Academic Corruption
Yongning, Yuan; Jian, Zhang; Haibo, Wang
Chinese Education and Society, v40 n6 p54-66 Nov-Dec 2007
Combating corruption is an important condition for bringing about the flourishing of academic research. There are many reasons for the emergence and proliferation of academic corruption today. These are closely related to the long-term lack of training among our country's scholars in modern academic standards and the absence of an academic spirit as well as the nonseparation of academics and politics in terms of academics administration, the politization and ideologization of academics, and flaws in the academic system. To extirpate academic corruption, we should on the one hand vigorously encourage a scientific spirit and enhance academic ethics among scholars while restricting excessive interference by political power in academic research and creating a relaxed and free academic research atmosphere and, on the other hand, perfect the systems of supervision, sanctions, and evaluation for academics and ensure the standard conduct of academic research.
