Abstract

TUDELA, Julio  and  AZNAR, Justo. FRAUD IN SCIENTIFIC PUBLISHING: A CONTROVERSY THAT DOES NOT CEASE. pers.bioét. [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.2, pp.153-157. ISSN 0123-3122.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5294/PEBI.2014.18.2.5.

Fraud in scientific publishing is a drag on the release of research papers, the causes of which should be analyzed. To the reprehensible conduct of researchers who commit fraud one can add the bias the scientific publications and the Internet search engines can introduce to the processes of selection, validation, and calculation of the impact factors of papers already submitted and published. This article offers a reflection on the issue, as a result of related new data having recently been published.

Keywords : Fraud; scientific and technical publications; impact factor; search engine; ethics.
