Another Discussion about Academic Corruption
Changgeng, Li
Chinese Education and Society, v40 n6 p77-83 Nov-Dec 2007
Academic corruption is a commonplace matter about which all people are clearly aware. However, people often overlook many hidden or latent manifestations of academic corruption. This article discusses eight of these manifestations: indiscriminate use of the academic team spirit, the proliferation of "word games," deliberate attacks on others to build oneself up, shallow use of foreign language documentation and materials, tracing everything back to history, indiscriminate use of footnotes and reference materials, indiscriminate use of the "famous personages and famous schools effect," and indiscriminate citing of national conditions and the politicization of academics.
