"The academic world is very hierarch. We are by nature very competitive. Because people are competitive they will try and get an edge, they will try to cut corners, they will try to engage in practices that are not necessarily lawful to get published. Please try and get your career by publishing using these practices we will share with you as we can, some of the best practices to help you here. " "The academic world is highly hierarchical. By nature we are very competitive. Because people are competitive they will try to gain an edge, try to find shortcuts, engage in practices that are, to say, not necessarily legal to be published. Please create a career by publishing using those practices that we will share as best we can, these are some of the best practices to help you. "

“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”
To persevere, you need patience. As a Doctor or PhD student, you can get there. In my 31 years of career, I have only one study that I have not been able to publish. There have been works that I have been able to publish after six, seven or even eight years, but during this time I persevered, I received the reviews, and if I received a refusal to publish I considered it an opportunity to improve myself. I was reviewing the paper, looking for a new opportunity, perhaps a new publishing house where publishing would be a little less competitive.

“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.”
"For the most part, my presentation will try to explain that ethical decisions and behavior are not only related to the author, they are also related to censors, editors, publishers and shareholders. I want to introduce you to this vision. Then I will talk about the available guidance from the Publishing Ethics Committee and I will present you all this by calling for case studies. "
This event is part of the Integrity Summit for Prosperity and is organized with financial help from the project "Collective Action for Business Integrity"
