Huh, really?


China has pledged to issue a blacklist of dishonest academics to stem the tide of false research results and plagiarism among academics and scientists. [...]

A recent survey of 180 PhD holders found that 60 percent had paid to have their papers published and a similar percentage had copied others' work.

    This is just one of many reasons why I am always saying one needs a written contract when doing business in China.

    ChinaLawBlog: I have no idea about what's happening in China. This particular piece of news was quite surprising -- to me, at least.

    Thanks for your perspective, though.
