“The academic world is very hierarch. We are by nature very competitive. Because people are competitive they will try and gain an edge, they will try to cut corners, they will try to engage in practices which are shall we say not necessarily lawful in order to get published. Please try and get you career going by publishing using those practices we will share with you as best we can, some of the best practices to help you here.”
Prof. Rick D. Hackett, McMaster Canada
“To persevere you need a thick skin. As a Ph.D. entrained in research methods you can get there. Over my 31 years career there is only one study that I did not publish. There are some papers that have kept me six or seven or eight years to publish but in the process I persevered, I got the reviews back, if they were a rejection that was helpful feedback for me. I would revise the paper, look for an alternative outlet, maybe an outlet that is a little less competitive to get into”
Prof. Adrian Ziderman, Bar-Ilan University Israel
“Most of my presentation will be making a point that ethical misbehaving is not only relating to authors, is related also to reviewers, editors, publishers, and shareholders. And I want to present you that as well. Then I will speak about what guidance is available from the Committee of Publication Ethics and I will also explain everything with case studies.”
The event is part of the Integrity for Prosperity Summit and is organized with financial support from the “Collective Action for Business Integrity” project.
