[Podcast] Plagiarism and Publishing Ethics: Writing Best Practices

Posted by Jessica Gopalakrishnan on Dec 12, 2014 4:26:00 PM

Plagiarism and integrity continue to be areas of concern on academic, research and publishing levels.  We had the pleasure of speaking with Peter LaPlaca who is the editor of Industrial Marketing Management (IMM), a journal published by Elsevier, and a global seminar speaker, promoting ethics. During this audio interview, Mr. LaPlaca discusses various types of issues he and other editors encounter (some are rather surprising), best practices for how editors can handle submissions that contain plagiarism, and how giving students the proper guidance can make a world of difference when it comes to publishing success.

Plagiarism on college campuses is a well-documented problem. Much of the emphasis is placed on undergraduate education and the need to teach students how to correctly integrate writing into their courses. What is less often discussed is the growth of cheating and plagiarism in graduate and professional schools. In fact, while rates of cheating among graduate students are lower than among undergraduates, they are not substantially lower. The paper, Ph.D. in "Cut-and-Paste"?, provides insight into the growing problem of plagiarism in graduate programs, and why it may be particularly prevalent in STEM disciplines and among ESL students, highlights consequences and types of plagiarism facing graduate students and scholars, and offers educational solutions to preventing plagiarism within the graduate community.

Although billions are spent each year on health research much of it is not reported adequately in the literature. This seriously undermines the usability of reported findings and misleads clinicians, researchers, policy makers and, ultimately, patients. Dr. Iveta Simera, Head of Programme Development for the EQUATOR Network (Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research), recently connected with iThenticate to delve into key ethical issues in health research. During this 20-minute interview, Simera highlights ethical issues in medical research today, explores the adeptness of current extrajudicial process for addressing ethical issues, and suggests steps that journals, authors and or/editors could take to help improve the quality of reporting of medical research.

EQUATOR Network on the Pulse of Ethics in Health Research

Posted by Jessica Gopalakrishnan on Jul 9, 2014 10:53:00 AM

Providing a complete, accurate and clear account of conducted research studies in scientific publications is an integral part of responsible research. Yet the literature is full of examples documenting inadequacy of health research reporting: non-publishing whole studies or selecting only some outcomes for publication with ‘attractive’ results; inadequately described methods and interventions preventing their assessment and replication; confusing or misleading presentation of results, data, graphs, images; or inadequate reporting of harms, which in particular can have serious consequences for patients’ safety. These and other reporting problems undermine reliability of published research and seriously limit usability of presented findings in clinical practice and further research; this decreases returns from huge financial investments into the health research and wastes involvement of human participants in such studies.

equator-networkDr. Iveta Simera, Head of Programme Development for the EQUATOR Network, recently connected with iThenticate to delve into key ethical issues in health research. The EQUATOR Network, which stands for Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research, and is hosted by the Centre for Statistics in Medicine at Oxford University, focuses on providing guides for editors and researchers to help improve the quality and accuracy of medical research reporting.

During this 20-minute interview, hosted by Jonathan Bailey from Plagiarism Today, Simera highlights ethical issues in medical research today, explores the adeptness of current extrajudicial process for addressing ethical issues, and suggests steps that journals, authors and or/editors could take to help improve the quality of reporting of medical research.
