With ethics breaches making regular headlines and putting researchers, professors and writers in the hot seat, scholarly editors are on the front lines of the push for greater integrity in publishing. Two prominent editors of STM journals join iThenticate to reveal the results of a new survey that probed the top ethical and industry concerns of those at the helm of scholarly journals, focusing on five of the most serious concerns. Featured experts will share their perspectives and experiences on a range of issues from poorly designed studies to pressure to publish to plagiarism, as well as their thoughts on circumvention or prevention, for researchers, writers and editorial managers.
