Abstract

A recent study has revealed widespread unethical behaviour in academic research. Allen Wilhite focuses on two activities in particular; the addition to funding proposals of investigators not expected to contribute to the research, and editors who coerce authors to add citations to manuscripts even though those citations were not part of the scholars' reference material. Research institutions, funders, rankings bodies, and scholars themselves can and should do more to address such behaviours.
